Cam Newton’s wait has ended, and the 2015 MVP now has a chance to revive his career with one of the most storied franchises in NFL history. Yesterday, Newton agreed to a one-year deal with the New England Patriots, according to multiple reports. The first overall pick of the 2011 draft, Newton became a free agent after the rebuilding Carolina Panthers released him with one year left on his contract on March 24. Despite his impressive body of work, Newton remained unsigned for three months thanks largely to uncertainty over his health. A surgically repaired throwing shoulder and a Lisfranc fracture in his left foot limited Newton to just two games in 2019. Based on the many workout videos he has posted on his social media platforms this offseason, Newton appears to have recovered.
