Cam Newton News
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said the team has already talked with free-agent quarterback Cam Newton, but he downplayed it by saying the team was just doing their due diligence. Newton, who is now fully vaccinated, said that he's received interest from multiple teams of late, but it remains to be seen if anyone will actually sign him. Geno Smith struggled to get much going for the Seahawks in the Sunday night overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, especially downfield. With Russell Wilson (finger) on Injured Reserve and out for the foreseeable future, the Seahawks could take a chance on Newton, but there's no guarantee that he'd be any more productive than Smith, who knows Seattle's offense pretty well at this point.
Former New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton is now fully vaccinated and is still looking to find a team in 2021, according to sources. The topic of Newton not being vaccinated was a big topic of discussion in the preseason when he was still a member of the Patriots after he was forced to miss five days due to the league's COVID-19 testing protocols. Some wonder whether the Patriots decision to cut Newton had anything to do with the fact that he was not vaccinated at the time. It's questionable how much the 32-year-old has left in the tank, but he could latch on with another team as an experienced backup or emergency starter. It remains to be seen if Newton will find another team in 2021, but the fact that he's now vaccinated should make him more attractive to interested teams.
The Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans have interest in free agent quarterback Cam Newton, following the New England Patriots decision to cut him. This was a surprising cut, as Newton was the Patriots starting quarterback last season, and led his former team, the Carolina Panthers, to a Super Bowl berth. Newton looked more comfortable during preseason games in that offense compared to last season. Newton threw for 2,657 yards, eight touchdowns, 10 interceptions, and completed 65.8 percent of his passes. Newton has made it clear that there are not 32 quarterbacks better than him. His priority is to be a starter, which is the type of opportunity the Texans could provide, though the team is set to start Tyrod Taylor in 2021. On the other hand, the Cowboys will be in win-now mode, but Newton would back up Dak Prescott. The Cowboys concerns for Prescott's health could be put to rest if they are able to sign Newton.
Cam Newton's first year in New England wasn't memorable as the QB struggled to produce and dealt with a lack of help in the passing game. In addition, he contracted COVID-19 early in the season, which appeared to negatively affect his performance...
