The NFL analyst has asked the New England Patriots to consider signing a quarterback agreement for Cam Newton with a free agent. The Patriots were expected to take a quarterback in the NFL 2020 project, but they gave it to Jordan Love, who was available in 23rd place. However, the Patriots went down and exchanged dive #23 for the Los Angeles Chargers for second (#37) and third (#71) dives. The Patriots did not select a quarterback, but signed two free agent contracts with J’Mar Smith of Louisiana Tech and Brian Lewerke of Michigan.
With their final moves, the Patriots seemed content to hand the quarterback role to Jarrett Stidham, who reached the fourth round last year after longtime player Tom Brady signed a two-year, $50 million contract with the Tampa Bay Pirates.
Clark says Newtoncan match Patriots.
However, Ryan Clarke told ESPN First Double that head coach Bill Belichik must determine how Newton, the NFL 2015 MVP, would fit into the Patriots’ system as a player and as an individual.
For now, Clark said that the patriots do not have a quarterback on the roster that could stand out and a dynamic aspect to the position that would fall from the bag, make a few games and expand the game, giving you the opportunity for a second game. Cam Newton can do it, Clarke said in a report by Adam London of the New England Sports Network (NESN). Besides Stidham, the patriots have a veteran Brian Heuer as possible backup.
Newton was released out of season by the Carolina Panthers after Teddy Bridgewater signed a three-year contract worth over $60 million. Newton, who suffered several injuries in the following years after leading the Panthers to Super Bowl 50, is the only famous quarterback left in the free agent market after former Buccaneers starter James Winston signed a contract with the New Orleans Saints.
The Patriots have expressed their preference for the landing of Newton.
According to Sportsbook, PointsBet, the Patriots are the big favorites to sign Newton at -190, despite reports that Belichick is not interested in signing the multi-functional call. Although he was named Newton’s next station, Mike Giardi of FLN said there was no indication that New England was interested in coming. At the moment there is nothing prepared on this front, and I don’t think that will change, said Ghardi on Twitter. According to Samantha Prewight of the New York Post, the other teams that Newton can draw are the Jacksonville Jaguars (+300), the Pittsburgh Steel Mills (+700), the Denver Broncos (+1000), the Chicago Bears (+1100), the Washington Red Skins (+1500) and the Las Vegas Raiders (+1500).
