  • Patriots Re-Signing Cam Newton

    The New England Patriots will re-sign quarterback Cam Newton to a one-year deal worth "close to $14 million," according to a league source. Newton will return to New England after playing in 2020 on a one-year, $1.75 million deal that was heavy with incentives. The 31-year-old started 15 games and completed 65.8 percent of his passes for 2,657 yards, eight touchdowns and 10 interceptions. His passer rating of 82.9 put him 22nd overall among qualifying QBs. He also added 592 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns with his legs. Newton missed a game due to COVID-19, and he said it affected him the rest of the year. Another season in offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels' scheme should help Newton, but he'll need better weapons in the passing game to succeed. If Newton's passing doesn't improve, he'll merely be a QB2 with some upside because of his rushing abilities.

  • Cam Newton Has No Plans To Retire

    New England Patriots impending free-agent quarterback Cam Newton said he has no plans to retire. "I can't go out like that. I hear all of that talk. My pride won't allow me to do it. There aren't 32 guys better than me," Newton said. He began his first and potentially last year in New England averaging 238 passing yards per game with two touchdowns, two interceptions and four rushing touchdowns in the first three games. But then he tested positive for COVID-19 and averaged just 161.9 passing yards with six TDs and eight interceptions in his final 12 starts. The 31-year-old broke the franchise record for QB rushing yards (592) and can still be a dual-threat signal-caller, but it remains to be seen if a team will give him a chance at a starting gig in 2021.
