Cam Newton dropped from New England Patriots


Quarterback Cam Newton has been released by the New England Patriots in a surprise move ahead of the new NFL season.

Newton’s omission means rookie Mac Jones is likely to be the team’s starting quarterback.

The 32-year-old replaced Tom Brady at the Patriots in 2020 after nine years with the Carolina Panthers and had been expected to start the campaign.

Newton told his Instagram followers not to “feel sorry” for him.
