Newton nonetheless has to beat out Jarrett Stidham for the beginning job, however let’s face it, there’s no method the Patriots convey the previous NFL MVP in at this stage of the offseason until they anticipated him to win the job.
Take into account this, the largest downside to beginning Stidham in 2020 is his lack of expertise and reps as a beginning quarterback in follow, not to mention in precise video games. That’s the rationale some had been pointing to just lately signed Brian Hoyer as a possible starter whereas Stidham was introduced on top of things additional.
The signing of Newton tells us the Patriots are severe about competing in 2020, they usually weren’t keen to sacrifice rivalry for the sake of Stidham’s growth. If Newton can’t beat out a fourth-round choose who has thrown 4 regular-season passes in his NFL profession, then it is likely to be time for him to think about another choices within the sport.
As it’s, if Stidham does win the job, he can have confirmed he is able to carry out at a excessive degree, or at the least above the whole lot else the Patriots have on their roster at quarterback. If Newton wins the job, as anticipated, Stidham will nonetheless be capable to develop one other 12 months earlier than maybe taking the reins from Newton forward of the 2021 season. Newton’s deal is only for one 12 months, and he might want to show he’s worthy of one other long-term contract.
Count on him to be a person on a mission, as either side have a lot to achieve on this low-risk, high-reward state of affairs. As for Brady, we’d be fools to assume his thought course of on that is as harmless as his tweet. Brady is fiercely aggressive, and it’s extensively believed he left the Patriots for the Bucs to show he might win with out Invoice Belichick. He’ll have his alternative, and now with the Patriots signing Newton, it’d even function extra incentive for Brady to attempt to show his worth to his former mates, even over one other former league MVP.
