Cam Newton!! What’s Next? Back Up, Starter, Free Agent?

Cam Newton!! What’s Next? Back Up, Starter, Free Agent?

                What’s Next for Cam Newton, will he be a starter, back up or remain a free agent.  Which team could or should take a chance on Newton Patriots? Jaguars? Chargers? Seahawks? Dolphins? Newton was the 1st round pick for the Panthers back in 2011, 1x MVP, 3x Pro  Bowl and more accolades in his career.  Newton’s stats in 125 games 68-55-1 record, 59.6 Completion Rate, 29,041 total yards, 182 Touchdowns and 108 Interceptions.  So, what is next for Newton?

Patriots still showing no interest in signing Cam Newton after ...

Starter

  • Patriots

Currently the Patriots QB depth chart contain Jarrett Stidham (sophomore, 3 games in 2019, 0 TD & 1 Int) and Brian Hoyer, a veteran QB with both starter and back up experience.  Newton, healthy, beats out both Stidham and Hoyer based on stats and experience.  Playstyle wise it would be a little different for Newton, who could be ask to depend more on his passing and not so much on his running.  The Patriots will still benefit from a proven playmaker.

The Patriots’ have the best odds for a landing place for Newton, due to their lack of depth and experience, but it really depends on their plan for the 2020 season.  The Patriots can aim to come to term with Newton for a short term without any future commitments.  Now if the Patriots take more a route or commitments towards a higher draft pick (Trevor Lawrence), the Newton may have a different mindset and may value winning a bit more.

  • Dolphins

If the Dolphins want to give Tua Tagovailoa a year off in more a learning role while remaining (somewhat) competitive then Newton gives them the best shot.  While the Dolphins do have Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen on the roster, signing Newton would just add another mentor for Tua.  The signing of Newton, would have the biggest negative effect on Rosen, who is still young and trying to prove himself.

The key for the Dolphins is to bring in Newton as the best possible for mentor for Tua.  On a starting role, Newton will have a quality RB in Jordan Howard and receivers that can make plays in DeVante Parker and Albert Winston.  In the AFC East, the Dolphins have to fight off the Patriots, Bills and Jets so even a playoff spot could be a possibility.

  • Notable Mentions: Chargers

The same argument what was made for the Dolphins signing Newton can be made for the Chargers.

Cam Newton's Panthers divorce is getting ugly

Back up

  • Jaguars

The situation or appeal here is that the Leonard Fournette is recruiting Newton to the Jaguars.  The problem is that Fournette himself have been part of trading rumors.  The Jaguars’ seem committed to Gardner Minshew II but without the guaranteed that he can be the same trending and quality player from last year.  Newton could be their back up plan (pun intended).

  • Cowboys

While this may seem unlike or absolutely nonsense, Jerry Jones can put some pressure on Dak Prescott by signing Newton.  After signing him subtle Marcus Mariotta and Ryan Tannerhill references could be made to throw fuel into the drama.

  • Notable mentions: Cardinals, Bengals

Cam Newton rumors: New England Patriots 'haven't shown any ...

Free Agent

  • Bears

Newton to the Bears could be a possibility based on the unsatisfaction the Bears have with Mitch Trubisky and Nick Foles recent health history.  Also factoring the amount of money they have to leftover thanks to Khalil Mack’s contract.

Final Thoughts

                If Newton understand that he is not the same player from a couple years ago, making him willing to adapt his game and change his mentality he will be a contributor to any team that he goes.  In my opinion the Dolphins and Bears are where he could have the most success as he looks to rebound from last season.

Thanks for reading!! What do you think about the Newton situation and where do you think he can be the best fit?

NSS NFL Mark Your Calendar!! The Playoffs Are Here!! 1st Impressions

                The NFL playoffs are officially here!!! The stage and teams are set for the AFC and NFC wild card games.  Here are some 1st impressions of the upcoming games.  It is way too early to make a clear pick for most of this games.  In my opinion the only sure game is  the Saints beating the Vikings #MinnessotaMiracleNotAgain.

AFC 1st Bye Week: Ravens & Chiefs

NFC 1st Bye Week: 49ers & Packers

AFC Wild Card – Saturday January 4th, 2019

Bills (10-6) @ Texans (10-6) – This will go really good or really bad!!

            The Texans lose to the Broncos stands out to me on a 1st impression base.  Also the Bills 2 losses to the Patriots really stands out, it just doesn’t put much confidence in them.  This should be an exciting game due to the fact that both of this teams can either play top football but also stink it up the whole stadium.

Pick:  Not yet.

Nonsense Sports Facebook Poll

Titans (9-7) @ Patriots (12-4) – The Titans can go wild vs the Patriots

            The easy pick here is picking the Patriots.  But Ryan Tannerhill and Derrick Henry are extreme wild cards.  Lastly I have a theory about Tom Brady and the Patriots, maybe the Titans could really help me out with some Nonsense.

Pick: Can the Titans Pull It Off or Is That Nonsense??

NFC Wild Card – Sunday January 5th, 2019

Vikings (10-6) @ Saints (13-3) – Minnesota Miracle Rematch

            Automatically the “Minnesota Miracle” comes to mind regarding this matchup.  Case Keenum is no longer a Viking and it can be argued that the offense was running better under him rather than Kirk Cousins.

 Pick: Saints 100%

Nonsense Sports Facebook Poll

Seahawks (11-5) @ Eagles (9-7) – Seahawks Vs Eagles

            At this time, all I can think about is the Seahawks losing to the 49ers, Lynch not going for it and just how everything about went down really fast for the Seahawks.  The Eagles just picked up a brand new class of wide receivers still yet to be known, but who cares, the Cowboys didn’t make the playoffs.

Pick: not yet. but probably Seahawks.

NSS NFL Dec. 21st Saturday Matchups!! Preview & Picks!!

NSS NFL Dec. 21st Saturday Matchups!! Preview & Picks!!

Texans @ Buccaneers:

                Deshaun Watson and the Texans path to the playoffs is not set fully set in stone and there is still a small window for the Titans to get in.  not to bring up bad times/ weeks for the Texans but whatever happen against the Broncos can’t happen again.  The true focus for the Texans is actually weeks 17 when they host the Titans. 

                How crazy is that Jameis Winston has 30 Touchdowns, 4,573 yards and 24 interceptions.  Is like he is feeding both the offense and the defense every game.  The defense for the Buccaneers have been excellent, just imagine their mentality every time Winston does something good, they may just be prepping for him to do something bad just as well.  Winston could be the NFL’s most complicated case.

                Texans need the win against a Buccaneers’ team on a 4-game winning streak working on a last-minute playoff run.

Nonsense Stats

DeAndre Hopkins

  • At 99 Receptions, 2nd in the NFL
  • One more receptions Means
    • Consecutive seasons with 100+ receptions
    • 3rd consecutive season with 1,000+ Receiving yards
  • Only 3 Touchdowns away from having 3 consecutive seasons with 10+ receiving touchdowns.

Pick: Texans. 

Bills @ Patriots

                This game seems to be easily disregarded since both teams are already playoff bound, but it shouldn’t be that way.  The Patriots (at the moment) have the higher seed but it if the Bills can pull off the win, just imagine the possibilities.  The Bills have proven to have a top defense that should not be taking lightly.  While on the other side every week there is more and more questions regarding Tom Brady and the Patriots’ offense.

                Patriots won by less than a touchdown during their 1st meeting and there was not a passing touchdown for neither team.  Brady threw 1 interception, while Allen threw 3 interceptions that game, this game paints the picture of a defensive game.  No matter how good the defenses both Brady and Allen will be familiar with schemes and game plans given the offense the advantage, in theory.

This either will be the best or the worse game played this week.

Pick: Bills

Rams @ 49ers

                The Rams are pretty much out of the playoffs because seriously there is just too much that has to happen for them to sneak in.  On the other side the 49ers need to focus on next weeks game vs the Seahawks, who is one of their 3 losses.

Pick: 49ers by a lot.
