Former MVP QB Cam Newton agrees to 1-year deal with Patriots
The 2015 MVP-winning quarterback has agreed to terms on a one-year deal to join coach Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Rapoport added that the deal, which both sides have quietly worked on recently, is worth up to $7.5 million, according to a source informed of the terms.

Patriots provide perfect landing spot for Cam Newton
After two straight seasons ravaged by injuries, the 2015 MVP became a free agent at the worst possible time. A global pandemic prevented teams from getting a clear medical picture of Newton during an offseason awash in quarterback options and teams convinced they had found "The Guy." Many of those teams will look foolish by late fall because many teams always look foolish by late fall. Newton, meanwhile, should be in the thick of a playoff race.

Neal was also one of the few players who could lighten my mood during games. Not that I was ever in a bad mood, but I'd be so focused on the task at hand that it was hard for me to get out of the zone. He had this saying, and I can still hear it clear as day. When we lined up out of the huddle and the quarterback walked up under center, Neal would turn around and say, "Get on my hip and don't dip, daddy. Let's go." I can't help but chuckle when I think about that. We had so many great moments -- on and off the field -- during those five seasons with the Chargers, and it was only fitting that he was the presenter at my enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
