NFL: Cam Newton joining Patriots on one-year deal per reports

Former NFL MVP Cam Newton will attempt to fill the void created by Tom Brady’s departure from the New England Patriots after agreeing a one-year deal with the six-time Super Bowl champions, reports said Sunday.

Newton, who was released by the Carolina Panthers in March, has passed a medical and is “eager” to rebuild his career under Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, ESPN reported.

The 31-year-old has struggled with injuries over the past two seasons and has failed to recapture the form which earned him regular season MVP honours in 2015.

Since being chosen as the number one pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, Newton has amassed 29,041 passing yards with 182 touchdowns and 108 interceptions.

He has also rushed for 4,806 yards and 58 touchdowns, more than any other quarterback in NFL history.
