Cam Newton is ready to “run it back” with the New England Patriots in 2021.
The video’s caption includes the phrases “RUN IT BACK” and “CHAPTER (TWO).”
Had he not re-upped, Newton would have become an unrestricted free agent when the NFL league year opens next Wednesday.
The Patriots went 7-9 and missed the playoffs in 2020 with Newton as their starting quarterback. The 2015 NFL MVP rushed for 592 yards and 12 touchdowns but struggled as a passer while throwing to one of the league’s weakest collections of wide receivers and tight ends.
Newton also admitted he had difficultly learning New England’s complex offense after signing three months into free agency last offseason and missing nearly two weeks of practice in October after testing positive for COVID-19.
