Pats lose pick; sign QB Newton

Pats lose pick; sign QB Newton … It was a good news, bad news day for New England. On the one hand, the Patriots have reportedly come to terms on a one-year deal with former Carolina QB Cam Newton who was released by the Panthers earlier this off-season. With the Patriots, Newton will have a chance to compete to replace Tom Brady if he is fully healed from a lingering foot injury. It wasn’t all peaches and cream for the Patriots, though, as they have reportedly been fined over $1M and will forfeit a third-round pick at the 2021 draft as part of the punishment for their television crew filming the field and sideline during a game in December against league rules.
