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.
