Patriots Re-Sign Cam Newton to $14M Deal

Cam Newton is surprisingly staying in Foxborough.

The former league MVP has agreed to re-sign with the New England Patriots on a one-year deal, according to The Boston Globe.

The deal is worth up to $14 million and includes $6 million in incentives, per ESPN.

In 15 games with the Patriots last season, Newton threw for 2,657 yards, eight touchdown passes and 10 interceptions. He also led all quarterbacks with 12 rushing touchdowns.

The Patriots missed the playoffs last season largely due to their inability to surround Newton with enough offensive firepower. Newton contracted COVID-19 during the season.

Even though Newton and the Patriots were able to come to an agreement, New England may not be done looking for quarterbacks this offseason.

Newton, a three-time Pro Bowler, has 31,698 passing yards, 190 passing touchdowns and 70 rushing touchdowns over his 10-year career.
