Morning sports update: What NFL experts are saying about Cam Newton and the Patriots

5

Tom Brady held an introductory convention name on Tuesday after signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brady largely prevented particular matters referring to his former group, the Patriots, together with what it will’ve taken for him to remain in New England.

“I don’t want to talk about the past,” Brady instructed reporters. “Because that’s not relevant to what’s important in my future and what’s going on this offseason for me.”

The dialogue of Cam Newton and the Patriots: For the primary time in 20 years, Patriots followers have uncertainty over who would be the group’s quarterback. This has led to hypothesis over what the group will do.

The almost certainly reply for the time being is that New England will merely flip over the beginning job to Brady’s backup, second yr quarterback Jarrett Stidham.

But with 31-year-old Cam Newton all of the sudden a free agent following his launch by the Panthers on Tuesday, it’s led to dialogue over whether or not the 2015 NFL MVP may be match for the Patriots.

“Maybe the outlier a little bit is the Patriots,” stated former quarterback Kurt Warner on NFL Network. “I would love to see Bill Belichick and that defense with Cam Newton and what they could do on that side. So, maybe an outlier right there because Jarrett Stidham, again, a young guy that hasn’t really proven himself.”

Warner isn’t the one former NFL participant who views Newton and New England as an intriguing risk.

“Who would fit better in that situation than Cam Newton?” requested ESPN analyst Domonique Foxworth on Wednesday morning’s “Get Up!”

And but, Newton doesn’t look like a probable goal of the Patriots. As Jeff Howe of The Athletic famous, the previous Panther is reportedly not an “immediate interest” for Bill Belichick.

Regarding Cam Newton, it doesn’t seem the Patriots have any quick curiosity in including the QB, per supply.
