Newton battled injuries all of last season, appearing in only 2 games for the Panthers. He played in 14 games in 2018, throwing for 3,395 yards and 24 touchdowns. He added 488 yards and 4 touchdowns as a runner.
Will he be able to beat out fellow ex-Auburn QB Jarrett Stidham for the starting job in New England in 2020? We’ll find out as the summer progresses.
