Nah, they definitely love Stidham. It’s just a low risk high reward move, can’t question the talent Cam has. Especially when you consider it’s for league minimum, Cam wants to prove himself.
I don't think so. Stidham could have been drafted first overall and you'd still want some level of non-Hoyer insurance kicking around. Mind you, given the cap, I was fine with that. However I feel about Newton there is no downside to this and I don't think that it reflected on Stidham negatively whatsoever.
Worst case is that he beats out Stidham and the Pats win 7-9 games, so we never get to see Stidham play but we don't draft high enough in the first round to get one of the better QBs.It's really hard to be upset over a cheap deal for Cam Newton. Worst case he isn't ready and gets cut.
As one source with knowledge of the situation explained it to PFT, the opportunity to play for coach Bill Belichick in the New England system and to re-energize his image were major factors in the decision.
Kinda both?Especially since he signed with Dallas
Or did I miss a joke?
