Cam had one good year. They paid him what’s he’s worth. After this year he will be paid less. He’s a has been. Has been good one year.

Cam Newton payed too little? The guy who constantly acts like a baby when he is losing, he wont bring you back from a deficit. That guy? Cam Newton is not a Russell Wilson or Mahomes.

I’m guessing there are medical issues that aren’t being disclosed that led to this mutual agreement. Also Newton agreed; he wasn’t forced to sign anything he wasn’t willing to accept. So all this debate is just air to make the Pats look cheap and unappreciative. Also while with the Panthers I didn’t think Newton was anything special-just another NFL QB. One of two things are going to happen for sure: either Newton will flourish under the Pats system-assuming injuries don’t plague his play OR Newton will be a bust. So, let’s just wait and see.......

Remember when Richard Sherman made up the story about Mayfield ignoring a handshake and then admitted he made it up. That's what I keep in mind anytime Sherman thinks he has anything important to say.

Players are simply pawns in a chess game. It's like a trial run to see what he does but I get it since he's in his 30's and you don't want to pay him all that money and he disappoints cause his injuries over the years. Carolina and Pats should of traded.

Cam’s best seasons were when they were running the wildcat and triple option. This caught the NFL off guard and it worked for a time. Teams aren’t fooled by this gimmick anymore. Hence, few teams play this set and teams don’t want a guy that isn’t accurate and can’t pass out of the pocket. HE SIGNED THE CONTRACT! If he didn’t want to go to the Patriots he could have signed for a bigger contract but was asking too much initially. Teams moves on and he bid himself out of the market. His attitude is also terrible and people don’t want to deal with that, possible injury concerns and bad play.

Any other year, this doesn't happen. The injury, inability to work out for teams and his late dismissal from Carolina all added up to this. Who else was planning on signing him? Also, I remember months ago saying the Pats/Browns and others should get him quick and TONS of people telling me he needs to retire/is done and that Belichick wouldn't touch him. Now these people are saying Cam is taking them to the playoffs/SB with no weapons.

Unfortunately this is the business side of things. His resume didn't decide his contract, the market did.

Peyton Manning at 36 years old, after potentially career ending NECK surgery, received a fat contract and the keys to the organization in Denver. Cam hurts his shoulder and his ankle at 31 and they make every excuse not to pay him or even start him! Show this man some respect. Cam has capitalized on every opportunity he’s receive and won on every level. This year will be no different.

Instead of taking a knee these ball players should get down a little further and kiss the ground they where blessed to live in and earn millions of dollars off of thier people that come go see them play! News on the streets ,things are a changing,. No one is going to watch! We are not giving them our hard earned money! We'll watch college or even High school ball! Better players anyway!

Cam was hit in Carolina because he didn’t have a line to protect him. Now that he’s in New England he has an O line that protects, Tom Brady almost never got hit. He’s going to be fire 🔥 this year

The owners in every profession collude to drive the price of labor down. Unfortunately Stephen A. Smith doesn't get paid to discuss the plumbers collective bargaining agreement or the plumber's salary cap. It has nothing to do with race. Tom Brady has rings so the Pats didn't drive the price down. Cam has no rings and is coming from a losing team in a very very bad state...

It’s irrelevant how much they’re paying him. If the man signs the contract, he was okay with the deal. Plus, he’s been injury prone the past 3 or so years. He was an MVP how long ago? He hasn’t been playing MVP caliber football in years. It’s a prove it one year deal. If anyone knows football, pats get players cheap. You’d think these analysts would get that but apparently not lol. Not to mention Richard Sherman coming from Stanford

Cam Newton has lost 8 games in a row, he's coming off of a major injury and because of Covid, teams weren't able to have him work out to see if he's healthy. He's going to the perfect team to resurrect his career. If he is healthy and plays well, he's going to get a huge contract next season.
