Cam Newton, New England Patriots
Cam Newton is no stranger to the NFL football field or the struggles and victories that come from it. He has had injuries and losses but he has also been to a Super Bowl. He brings the perfect experience skill set to mentor younger players.
In fact, I think that Newton would tell you last year was one of those “struggle” years. One of the big questions around Newton was his health, but the Saints should be able to rest on that seeing that Newton starting 15 games in New England last year.
He also was able to throw for 2,657 yards and eight touchdowns with 10 interceptions. He also totaled 593 yards and 12 touchdowns with his legs. That makes sense if you look at the number of weapons that Newton had in New England — zero.
With Brees retiring, New Orleans should have enough money to make Newton happy in Louisiana. I also think he puts the black and gold in a win-now mindset and would be able to take this Super-Bowl-ready team back to the Super Bowl next year.
