Patriots' Brian Hoyer: Joined by Newton in FoxboroughJune 29, 2020 | 07:36 AM
The Patriots have signed Cam Newton to compete with Hoyer and Jarrett Stidham for the starting quarterback job, ESPN. com's Mike Reiss reports. Hoyer would've been the underdog in a 1v1 competition with Stidham and now looks like an extreme long shot to get the Week 1 start. In fact, the 34-year-old may not even have a spot on the 53-man roster, considering he's scheduled to make only $1.05 million in 2020. WEEI's Ryan Hannable reported three months ago that Hoyer was told he'd get a chance to compete for the starting job, but it's now fair to wonder if he'll actually receive a significant number of reps with the first-team offense to make his case.
