Cam Newton Re-Signs with Patriots

In the 2015 NFL season Cam Newton was playing great. He won the NFL Most Valuable Player award (MVP), and NFL Offensive Player of the Year award (OPOTY). The Carolina Panthers had a record of 15-1 in the regular season, and Cam Newton led them to the Super Bowl. But they were defeated by the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl. Since then Newton has not really been the same. He has been an average quarterback since the 2015 NFL season.

In the 2016 and 2017 NFL seasons Cam did not play well. Those were the worst two seasons of his career. In the 2018 NFL season he played alright, but still not great. In the 2019 NFL season Newton got injured, and he only played in two games that season. During the off-season the Carolina Panthers released Newton.

After Cam was released by the Panthers he signed a one year deal with the New England Patriots. Newton did not have a good year during the 2020 NFL season with the Patriots. He only had eight passing touchdowns. He did have twelve rushing touchdowns though. But he also had ten interceptions. Many people did not think that the Patriots would re-sign Newton because of his poor play this past season. Another reason people did not think that New England would re-sign Cam was because he had only signed a one year contract previously, and the Patriots could draft a new quarterback. So it was pretty shocking when the Patriots re-signed Newton to a one year deal worth up to 13.6 million dollars. This was very big news throughout the NFL. I think that most people were surprised by this, I definitely was. It will be interesting to see how Cam Newton plays this upcoming season.

  1. I believe this was the right move for the Patriots because Cam now has a better feel for the offense. They also got a lot better because of all their free agency transactions. If Cam can be an average QB this year. The Patriots will be contenders.

  2. I used to love watching Cam Newton play on the panthers he was arguably one of the best quarterbacks at the time! It’s a shame he hasn’t been able to play very well since, hopefully he can get back to his prime again.

  3. I think this was a great move for the Patriots as it really gives him a chance to return to form with all the new weapons that they have now. Im just surprised they signed him for 13 million with the cap shrinking as much as it did. The patriots have a great chance to contend in the AFC this year if Cam comes back better.
