Patriots sign Cam Newton to one-year deal

Quarterback Cam Newton has reached a one-year, incentive-laden agreement with the New England Patriots, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the deal is worth up to $7.5 million.

And that's about what you'd expect given Newton's rather barren market.

Newton had been a free agent since being released by the Carolina Panthers on March 24 with one season left on a five-year, $103.8 million contract.

The association implemented the ban to "support our government in this warlike situation with China", Khandelwal said. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been vocal about promoting domestic manufacturing and protecting small firms.

Newton joins a crowded QB room in Foxborough, with Jarrett Stidham, Brian Hoyer, J'Mar Smith, and Brian Lewerke already in the fold. Because of National Football League regulations put in place for the COVID-19 crisis, team medical staffs haven't had the opportunity to examine Newton to gauge his recovery.

Newton played in only two games last season due to shoulder and foot injuries. Newton has actually lost eight straight starts dating back to the 2018 season, too. with his last win coming back on November 4, 2018.

Aside from experience and past production, Newton also offers more in terms of his mobility in and outside of the pocket. It was an ignominious fate for a player who was drafted first overall by the Panthers in 2011 and went on to win MVP in 2015 before injuries sapped his value.

Newton has thrown for 29,401 yards with 182 touchdowns and 108 interceptions as a professional.
