Jarrett Stidham might not be ready to be a starting quarterback and Cam Newton would be an interesting addition to the New England Patriots.
The New England Patriots are having to deal with something they haven’t dealt with in a while. They need to find a new quarterback.

But I think that Stidham might not be ready yet. Especially with the pressure that would be on him if he was the starting QB.
That’s why I think the Patriots need to bring someone in. Cam Newton’s situation with the Carolina Panthers makes him a perfect candidate.
Newton and Carolina seem to be at odds with one side saying the other wants to leave. With Teddy Bridgewater joining the Panthers it is pretty obvious Newton is on his way out.
If the Patriots are patient they could sign Newton as a free agent. With recent moves New England has made, they should be able to afford Newton.
Joining the Patriots would be a great opportunity for Newton. He has been struggling these last 4 years but still has some potential. He is only 30 years old.
When he was at his best Newton was MVP of the league. He could run to extend plays and also had a great arm.
If Newton did end up in New England, he could become a better passer. He likely wouldn’t be running as much due to the injuries Newton has sustained.
With Newton and Belichick in New England, I think the Patriots could be competitive. Cam is still talented and Belichick should be able to find the right scheme for the QB.
So I definitely would like to see Cam Newton in a Patriots uniform.
