This offseason has been considerably more active than normal for the New England Patriots. They have gone on a spending spree and brought in many players. Generally, the Patriots have a reputation for taking their sweet time with signings. This year, however, they have not followed the trend as they renewed the contract of Cam Newton.
After a dismal last season where they did not even make the playoffs, Bill Belichick and his staff are planning a massive rebuild which will include having fresh talent along with season veterans in the squad. This is where Cam Newton comes in. The veteran quarterback had an abysmal season in 2020 which was unsatisfactory by any standards. However, this year he is prepared and ready to give it his all.
TV analysts Marcus Spears talked about the quarterback’s chances of “balling out” with the Patriots this season. Spears is of the opinion that it will be very difficult for Newton to get into a good rhythm with the Boston outfit.
In his chat about the New England Patriots with ESPN, Marcus Spears said, “Cam Newton should play better than last year. However, balling out in my definition is when you are up towards the top of the league regarding the position. I don’t think Cam will be there. I hope I’m wrong because I’d love to see him have some success in New England.”
He continued, “However, based on last year. I can’t say that he’ll come good. People talk about Cam’s athleticism and the things he did that were successful. However, I watched Cam throw the football terribly, with his arm. That gave me a lot of concern. There are certain things he needs to do in order to regain his 2015 form.”
Cam Newton confident that he will perform well this season
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.
He has tremendous respect among his New England teammates. Some young players have come out and said that they are eager to share the locker room with him. Newton is sure to bring back memories of Tom Brady provided he gets back into top gear.
Belichick and the Patriots are a side that can challenge for the title in any given season, and Newton can play an influential role in that.
The new NFL season commences from 9th September in the fall. Super Bowl LVI will be held in the newly constructed SoFi stadium in Inglewood, California. Home of the Los Angeles Rams.
