I don't like this. I guess not many of us will.He was cut, so no impact on compensatory picks as I understand it. The Pats always maximize comp picks when making signings.
The NFL has awarded compensatory picks since 1994. No team has more than the Ravens have all-time and by a wide margin.
The Ravens have received 50 extra choices in history, which means losing more or better compensatory free agents (CFA) than it acquired the previous year based on a formula using salary, playing time and postseason honors...
The Cowboys and Packers tie for second with 42 all-time compensatory picks. The Patriots have 39, the Rams 36 and the Bengals 35.
The Saints have received the fewest — only 10 — in the history of compensatory picks, with the Browns ranking 31st with 13 and the Jets 30th with 14.
Haha, I nearly originally added to my post, 'although the Ravens are the dons at this'. I'm well aware of their skills, Ozzie has set them up well and passed on his knowledge to his successors, too. They're a very strong organisation.I don't like this. I guess not many of us will.
I will be surprised if Bill can do anything with him. Newton is the antithesis of Brady.What's going to be entertaining is watching everyone freak once Bill has turned Cam back into a commodity and trades him for multiple 1st round picks and still makes it deep into the playoffs.
I saw that. It has absolutely zero to do with his race. If Cam were a rookie again coming out...I guarantee you every team in the league would be interested. Instead they now have an NFL resume to go off of. A resume that shows inaccuracy, lack of leadership, lack of heart, poor sportsmanship, and an antagonistic behavior on the field.,Richard Sherman thinks it's disgusting since he had to sign for the minimum. I don't understand this. There was no market for Cam so what were the Patriots supposed to do give him a mega deal just because? He calls Cam a transcendent talent and that was true years ago but injuries have taken a toll. Cam Newton isn't the first good QB who had to play for less after injuries or diminished skill. It's fairly common.
Instead of being happy that Cam got another shot Sherman is trying to turn this into something it's not. This is a prove it deal. If Cam shows that he's still a transcendent talent then he'll be paid accordingly.
I see this statement alot. I am simply curious - do you or does anyone have a link that attributes that? And not the 2017 Seahawks item. TIA.yet Kaepernick wouldn’t sign for anything close to that and he hasn’t played in quite a few years. Maybe this will be a wake up call and he will just take the vet minimum for a second chance at football.
I agree. Also what receivers do the Pat's have?I don't see that. Cam is a shell of his former self. I'm sure that he's going to be better than Stidham or whoever their presumptive starter was, but I don't think the Pats + Cam are the "instant stone cold lock to win the division" that they have been for the past 20 years.
Pats+Cam will be one of the 6-10 teams that have a legit shot to get to the Super Bowl, but they won't be anyone's favorite and they're not going to intimidate anyone just by walking on the field like they did with Brady.
