The Patriots have reached a one-year, incentive-laden deal with Cam Newton to replace Tom Brady. No more Jarrett Stidham as the projected starting quarterback.
If I can be a Patriots fan for a second, this makes me very happy. Now we have to see how healthy Newton is. But learning the offense shouldn't be too tough because Norv Turner uses the same Erhardt-Perkins language that the Patriots use.
BONUS: At the same time that news leaked about the Patriots signing Newton, news also leaked about the NFL handing out penalties for the Patriots' television crew that filmed the Bengals sideline during a December game. The Patriots will lose a third-round pick in 2021, they get fined about $1.1 million, and Patriots' television crews will not be allowed to shoot any games during the 2020 season.
