Well, the unexpected happened yesterday. If you haven’t heard, the New England Patriots and Quarterback, Cam Newton, agreed on a one year deal worth 14 million, which is mostly incentive base. Bringing the Quarterback back to Foxboro has been raising a lot questions marks on what exactly the Patriots are doing. Newton performance last season was very underwhelming, finished 7-9, and the Patriots missed the playoffs for the first time since 2008.
However, according to reports, this isn’t the last move the Patriots are making at the Quarterback position this off-season. What does that mean? Well, it could mean one or two options.
One option, the Patriots could draft their next guy. Who could that be? There will be a couple options whether it’s Kellen Mond out of Texas A&M or Mac Jones out of Alabama. I say these two guys because these two are the most realistic to be available by the time the Patriots are on the clock. Justin Fields out of Ohio State or Trey Lance out of North Dakota State could be potential targets but that’s only if they drop in the draft for some mysterious reason or the Pats trade up.
Second option, the Patriots still trade for a Quarterback like 49ers Jimmy Garropolo. Should we lose hope on that potential reunion between Garropolo and the Patriots? No, not yet. According to a mock draft on CBS, the 49ers are projected to draft Quarterback out of Alabama, Mac Jones. If the 49ers were to do that, would Garropolo be a trade asset or a bridge guy? That remains to be seen but the Patriots could use that to their advantage by contacting the 49ers.
Although, the signing of Cam Newton raised question marks, the Patriots still have some pathways they can choose when it comes to the future at the Quarterback position. I don’t know what their plan is exactly. Right now, it seems like they don’t have one exactly but maybe I am wrong. I guess only time will tell.
