New England Patriots Super Bowl Champs

Report: QB Cam Newton and Patriots Agree to One-Year Deal

It took some three months, but quarterback Cam Newton has a new football home – and it’s with the six-time Super Bowl Champion Patriots.

Newton and the Pats have agreed to terms on a one-year deal after the quarterback was dumped by the Carolina Panthers, the team that drafted him first overall in 2011, back on March 24th.

It didn’t take long for Newton to become a star in the NFL, as he led Carolina to three straight NFC South titles from 2013-2015, a Super Bowl and four total postseason appearances.

Newton earned the 2015 NFL MVP award and was named to three Pro Bowls during his run in Carolina.

Injuries ended his career with the Cats, as he underwent multiple shoulder surgeries and missed all but two games in 2019 due to a foot injury that ultimately required a procedure.

The Patriots were steadfast in their search for a veteran QB, but also seemed just fine going with 2019 fourth-round pick Jarrett Stidham and 11-year veteran Brian Hoyer atop the depth chart at the QB spot.

The 31-year-old Newton passed the physical and is healthy, with both his shoulder and foot not having any issues according to ESPN.
