Pats cut Cam; hand ball to rookie Jones … In a little bit of a shocker, New England has outright released veteran QB Cam Newton and will go with rookie Mac Jones, the 15th player selected at this year’s draft, at the position. That the Patriots couldn’t find a trade partner for Newton is also a tad surprising given that there are a number of teams out there with major issues at the position. Newton now has 24 hours to clear waivers and if he isn’t picked up by somebody will be free to sign anywhere.
