Richard Sherman Calls Former MVP Cam Newton Signing With The Patriots For Peanuts ‘Disgusting’

Cam Newton is a New England Patriot is a collection of words I never thought I’d string together.

Cam Newton is making Ryan Fitzpatrick money is another sentence my brain could not take seriously during the Obama administration.

The 31-year-old former NFL MVP, who’s raked in $121 million in career earnings, signed a modest one-year deal worth up to $7.5 million with Belichick in the Patriots, a team who he’s owned in his two careers matchups against (2-0, 72% comp, 525 passing yards, 106 rushing yards, 7 TDs, 1 INT, 128 passer rating).

Newton is coming off shoulder surgery in 2018 and the ever-nagging Lisfranc (foot) surgery in December 2019, which may be why we live in a world where this statement is true.

Richard Sherman has an opinion is a sentence I could type until I develop early onset arthritis.

The Niners cornerback thinks the three-time Pro Bowler got boned by signing a frugal deal with the Patriots, going so far as to call the signing “disgusting.”

The comment section is popcorn-worthy.

And around and around we go.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
