The New England Patriots have signed quarterback Cam Newton.

According to Adam Schefter, Newton has agreed to an “incentive-laden deal” for one season with the Patriots. Ian Rapoport reported the deal has a max value of $7.5 million. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

The Auburn Heisman winner had previously spent all of his career with the Panthers.

Well, there it is, folks. Cam Newton is back on an NFL roster, and he’ll have a couple months to get himself acclimated to the Patriots.

What an absolutely blockbuster signing for Bill Belichick and company. Talk about sending shockwaves through the NFL.

Is Cam Newton going to replace Tom Brady? Asking any quarterback to replace the guy who won six Super Bowls is insane.

However, Newton is a freak of nature physically when he’s healthy, and we all know what he’s capable of when he’s at the top of his game.

He came a few plays away from winning a Super Bowl just a few years ago.
