The Patriots found the quarterback that will hopefully fill the void left by former New England quaterback Tom Brady . The New England Patriots signed Cam Newton to a one year deal according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter reports. Tom Brady left the Patriots after 20 seasons and 6 championships. He is now the starting quarter back for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Cam Newton has been the Carolina Panther’s quarterback since 2011 and is the 2015 NFL MVP. It will be interesting to see how Cam Newton and Patriots head coach Bill Belicheck work together. Also, time will tell if Newton is has left the plethera of injuries behind him, or if that is exactly why the Panthers let go of the 31 year old QB. Cam newton had remained unsigned for the last three months, due to health concerns. Carolina picked up free agent Teddy Bridgewater as their new starting QB.
Richard Sherman, San Francisco 49ers cornerback, thinks that Cam Newton’s salary with the Patriots is “Disgusting.” Sherman tweeted, “How many former League MVPs have had to sign for the min? (Asking for a friend.) just ridiculous. A transcendent talent and less talented QBs are getting 15/16m a year. Disgusting.”
