Cam Newton only signed a one-year deal with the Patriots, but fans around New England appear to believe the polarizing quarterback‘s tenure in Foxboro will last longer than that.
In a poll, over 80% of fans said they think Newton will be the starter for the 2021 season. Those results run directly counter to the thought that Newton is here to serve as a bridge quarterback to the young Jarrett Stidham, who just needs one more season of grooming on the bench before taking over as the starter.
Those results are almost identical to a previous poll asking fans who New England’s start will be for the upcoming 2020 season:
Whether the Patriots front office believes that or not is TBD, but their fans are clearly all-in on Cam Newton. If Bill Belichick does decide Newton is in his team’s plans beyond 2020, he’ll likely demand a contract much pricier and longer than the one he signed this offseason.
