Cam Newton Releases: 3 Teams Newton Should Sign Up Right Now
Madden 22 is adding 10 college football teams to the Campus Legends limited-time event
The NFL world can’t believe the New England Patriots actually cut quarterback Cam Newton.
On the day the NFL roster had to be reduced to 53 men, the New England Patriots split from last year’s quarterback Cam Newton.
Jim McBride from the Boston Globe dropped that bomb on us all Tuesday morning. While the Patriots used their first-round pick against Alabama soccer star Mac Jones last spring, it would have been thought that Newton would have served as a bridge starter in New England until Jones was ready. Now Jones is expected to start his first NFL career in Week 1 against the Miami Dolphins.
This is how Twitter reacts to the news that Newton will be cut by the patriots in the 11th hour
Cam Newton publishes: How the NFL World Reacts To This Bomb News
Newton’s release was a combination of Jones who looked impressive the preseason and made the gap between the two seem insignificant.
The fact that Newton is not vaccinated against COVID-19 and has a misunderstanding about the protocols can play a big role here too.
Ultimately, the future now lies in Foxborough, as Bill Belichick said Jones is the apparent heir to Tom Brady in New England.
In week 1 against Miami, Jones starts against his former Alabama teammate, Tua Tagovailoa.
