Newton’s offer is an extremely minimal “show it” type of deal. Short on money and high on rewards. According to a source to Pro Football Talk, the ability to play for head coach Costs Belichick and the opportunity to re-start his profession in the Patriots system, played a significant role in his choice to sign in New England.

Newton, who was the first general choice of the 2011 draft, will battle for the beginning position with second-year quarterback Jarrett Stidham. Both Stidham and Newton played at Auburn.
