The 2021 offseason will be wild for a myriad of reasons.

Russell Wilson could potentially leave the Seattle Seahawks, Deshaun Watson refuses to stay with the Houston Texans and it feels like there’s only a handful of secure quarterback situations league-wide. One of those extremely shaky scenarios is playing out with the New England Patriots, who don’t appear to have any real grip on their starter for next season.

Cam Newton signed last year on a one-year deal and many people initially thought he was as good as gone from Foxborough. There’s been rumors heating up that the 31-year-old is talking with the Patriots and could even stay with the team and have another shot with an upgraded roster.
