This is what the daily “Boston Globe” reported in the morning. This result is surprising to say the least, as the “Pats” decided to cut points with their No. 1 pivot last season. Consequently, Newton becomes a free agent.
He committed a total of 2,657 yards and eight aerial touchdowns, 10 interruptions in 2020. The former Carolina Panthers started three New England pre-season games in August, but Jones took the most action in Sunday’s game against the New York Giants. Newton hit the target twice on five occasions for 10 yards, the 22-year-old completed 156 yards in his 14 stunts and 10 in the touchdown, winning 22-20.
Subsequently, head coach Bill Belichick declined to reveal the identity of his trusted quarterback in preparation for the opening meeting on September 12 against the Miami Dolphins.
