Number Three: Cam Newton
I know, I know the takes in this article certainly require you to use your imagination, but if you consider the impact Cam Newton could have on the New Orleans Saints, you would chomp at the bit too!
The Saints were rumored to be interested in Cam Newton this offseason before they opted to sign Jameis Winston instead and there’s no reason to believe they wouldn’t still be interested in him going into next season as well.
Sure, Newton hasn’t had the greatest season with the New England Patriots this year, but he has very limited weapons on a team that signed him to a one-year deal out of pure desperation.
Newton would thrive for a team that would use him correctly as he did with the Carolina Panthers, and the Saints would be able to do just that.
Newton would also come to the team for cheap just like he did with the Patriots and playing in a familiar division would smooth his transition as well. Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan was vocal in the offseason about potentially bringing in Newton to back up Drew Brees, but the team opted to sign Winston instead.
Newton could thrive in New Orleans if the team opts to sign a veteran.
