    And while details are few and far between regarding what exactly the incentives will be, one did emerge Tuesday that made the deal look sweeter.
    Per CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, the Patriots won't be prevented from using the franchise tag on Newton in 2021.

  • Can Patriots Beat Top AFC Teams With Cam Newton? Ex-NFL Exec Makes Case

    5 days ago - By NESN

    The New England Patriots improved their Super Bowl odds Sunday night when they reportedly agreed to a one-year contract with quarterback Cam Newton.
    But are they really legitimate championship contenders in wake of the move?
    While one could argue the Patriots should remain the favorites in the AFC East, a division they dominated for two decades with Tom Brady running their offense, they'll still need to overcome the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens, among others, to reach Super Bowl LV.
    This will be a tall task, but Mike Lombardi, a former NFL executive who worked alongside Bill...

  • NFL Comeback Player of the Year odds: Is Newton worth the risk?

    5 days ago - By TheScore

    The Comeback Player of the Year race has taken a dramatic turn with more than two months remaining before the scheduled start of the NFL season. Quarterback Cam Newton shot up the oddsboard after signing with the Patriots on Sunday. With the move, his price shortened from +800 to the +300 favorite, unseating fellow QB Ben Roethlisberger in a volatile field. The upside is enormous if Newton can wrestle the job away from second-year signal-caller Jarrett Stidham and post respectable numbers in the Patriots' offense. Before his injury-plagued 2019 campaign, the former MVP had averaged a...

  • NFL Rumors: How Patriots, Cam Newton Eventually Came Together For Deal

    5 days ago - By NESN

    Cam Newton needed a job, and the New England Patriots are always looking to upgrade their team - at any position. In a lot of ways, this was always a natural fit.
    In the NFL, however, it's not always that simple. That's especially the case for the Patriots, who have very little salary cap space with the 2020 season nearing. So, it seemed, the Patriots would resist the urge to chase someone like Newton, a former MVP, while likely entering the season with second-year pro Jarrett Stidham under center, a player they reportedly love.
    But things changed, and that's apparently part of the reason...
