When Cam Newton signed with the New England Patriots, the first info known about his contract was that it was for the veteran minimum but was incentive-laden.
We now know what those incentives are, and how he can earn the maximum value of $7.5 million out of his deal in 2020.
The Patriots on Wednesday made the signing of the veteran quarterback official, and Thursday morning, ESPN’s Field Yates shared the full breakdown of Newton’s deal with New England.

Newton, though he is considered the frontrunner for the gig, now will compete with Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer to replace Tom Brady as New England’s starting quarterback.
