The New England Patriots bet on him and the 2020 NFL season ended up being a disappointment. Cam Newton came to the Pats on a one-year deal with the goal of at least making the Playoffs . This did not happen!
The last time the Patriots did not qualify for the Playoffs was in the 2008 season and there is no doubt that Tom Brady’s departure had consequences. Newton came in with a contract that was worth a maximum of $ 7.5 million if he won the Super Bowl , but since this did not happen, the quarterback’s failure ended up costing New England much less.
By incentives of games played and if he completes 80 percent of the plays, he has 86.8% with two weeks left, Newton will receive a salary at the end of the season of $ 3.706 million dollars. A relatively low cost that is still important because the Patriots will not be in the Playoffs.
The estimated salary of $ 3.706 million dollars that Cam Newton would receive at the end of the season could increase if he exceeds 90% participation in offensive plays, but could also be lower if he does not act in the last two games and the percentage of plays fell from the 86.8% it has.
“I think the most important thing is that I am trying to maximize the things that I know I have to demonstrate. And that starts on Monday. That simple I play this game for a reason, and it’s just to win. And we have a chance to win on Monday. Let’s see how that goes, ”Newton said of next Monday’s game between the New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills.
