While there’s plenty of speculation about Newton’s release it seems like it was purely a football decision.
There was a lot of momentum building toward the release of Cam Newton but first and foremost this was about performance. Mac Jones was better for the duration of the summer. He runs the offense the way Josh McDaniels wants it run. Period. End of story. #Patriots
