Carolina Panthers released Newton on March 24
(ESPN) – Former NFL MVP Cam Newton has reached agreement on a one-year, incentive-laden deal with the New England Patriots, league sources told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter.
Newton now will step into the mix to try to help replace former Patriots QB Tom Brady, who left to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in free agency. The Patriots did not select a quarterback in April’s draft.
The Carolina Panthers released Newton on March 24, ending their nine-year relationship with the quarterback they drafted No. 1 overall in 2011.
Carolina moved on from their one-time franchise quarterback after agreeing to a contract with free-agent quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to become the team’s new starter.
