News Articles > Jarrett Stidham: Gets competition from Cam

(RotoWire) The Patriots have signed Cam Newton to compete with Stidham and Brian Hoyer for the starting quarterback job, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: The 2015 NFL MVP profiles as the favorite in his competition against a 2019 fourth-round pick and a veteran journeyman, but the door could open for Stidham if Newton isn't sharp during training camp. Given that he's coming back from major foot surgery and also has a troubling history of shoulder injuries, there's no guarantee the 31-year-old Newton will look like the prime version of himself. The Patriots' patient approach to their post-Tom-Brady quarterback situation might be interpreted as a sign of confidence in Stidham, who was sharp last preseason but only saw mop-up duty (four pass attempts, one pick-six) once the games counted.
