Cam Newton gives emphatic answer when asked if he’d return to Patriots
New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton wants to stay where he is. He plans to return to New England in 2021.
He was asked if he would return to the Patriots during an appearance on the "I AM ATHLETE" podcast.
"Yes," said Newton. "In any case."
Newton, whose one-year contract with the Patriots expires in March, had nothing but good things to say about coach Bill Belichick.
"I think Bill Belichick is the most misunderstood person in all sports," Newton said. "He sucks. He's a cool guy."
Newton was asked if there was any chance he'd be back with the Patriots.
"There's always a chance for everything," he said.
However, he wouldn't say if he and New England are still in touch on a possible extension. Newton felt that a second year with the Patriots would be different - and it should be. New England was 7-9 in its first season as a starter. In 15 games he achieved a degree of completion of 65.8 for 2,657 yards, eight touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He added 12 rushing touchdowns.
"They know me. Dough Boy (N'Keal Harry) knows me. Jakobi (Meyers) knows me," Newton said. "Bud (Damiere Byrd) knows me. The young tight ends - the younger boys that are going to come in." This is how Cam will react: "Like we're still trying to flesh out the 20 years it used to be and I go in and I don't say, 'Well, that's not me."
The Patriots are doing their best to explore all possible ways to improve their quarterback position this off-season, according to The Athletic. As of now, Jarrett Stidham is their only quarterback on the roster.
