The New England Patriots went on a shopping spree like no other at the start of this free agency. They have signed a truckload of players which are poles apart from their strategies of previous years. One of those players is veteran quarterback Cam Newton from the Carolina Panthers. The Patriots resigned him with a one-year deal.
It is fair to say that the Patriots fans have not taken well to this signing. Social media outlets were buzzing with negative comments about this piece of business minutes after Newton’s return to Boston was announced.
TV analyst Jay Williams talked about this outrage at his show on ESPN. He said that it was as if people in Boston “don’t want Cam Newton to win”. However, Newton has admitted that he wants to work under Belichick’s tutelage.
Jay Williams talks about the outrage regarding Cam Newton
In a discussion with Keyshawn Johnson about Patriots and the free agency, Jay Williams mentioned the signing of Newton. He said, “It feels like the people are only remembering what happened last season. They just don’t want him to win at all.”
He continued, “How could you be a Patriots fan and not want your team to win, I don’t get it. However, it still feels that way.”
Cam Newton is a player who has a proven pedigree in the NFL. In fact, he won the MVP award in 2015 with the Carolina Panthers. Moreover, he is only 31, so he can use his experience to good effect against other teams.
The 2020-21 season was a dismal year for the New England Patriots and Cam Newton. The Patriots went 7-9 in his first season with the team, and he struggled quite a bit down the stretch. However, he will look forward to making it big this season, keeping an eye for the Lombardi Trophy.
The new NFL season will commence on 9th September in the fall. The first match will feature this year’s winners, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Super Bowl LVI will take place in the newly constructed SoFi stadium in Inglewood, California.
