The world should know by now that Tom Brady left New England to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The move shocked a lot of people, but according to an ESPN article, it was a long time coming. With arguably the GOAT no longer in New England, the Patriots will have a new starting quarterback. They have Jarrett Stidham and Cody Kessler on the roster and they just brought back Brian Hoyer. We don’t know what Stidham can do and Kessler has been a journeyman since entering the league. With Brian Hoyer, we know he’s not the long-term solution either. New England is an organization that knows all about winning and could bring in a number of signal callers. Let’s see who New England could bring to their organization.
Cam Newton was just released by the Carolina Panthers. Newton is free to sign wherever he would like and I’m sure he’ll have his suitors. Many people think with all the injuries that Newton can’t be an effective quarterback anymore. Cam will look to prove the naysayers wrong and show why he’s one of the most dynamic quarterbacks to ever play the position. With the lack of weapons in New England, they will need to quarterback that can make plays with his legs.
New England is one of the 3 landing spots Jameis Winston should land. Like Newton, Jameis will have a lot to prove and that one spot could be in New England. With Winston undergoing eye surgery, it may improve his vision. Winston is still young and the talent is still there. Maybe a change of scenery would be great for him and a new start in New England could be just it.
The Cincinnati Bengals will most likely pick Joe Burrow with the top pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Burrow is a special talent and many believe he will be the starter for the Bengals Week 1. Andy Dalton has one year left on his contract and the Bengals will try to trade him. There will be no team in the league that’s willing to take on Dalton’s salary, so they’ll release him. Andy Dalton still has some good years ahead of him. Dalton’s talent would go great with Coach Belichick and the Patriots. The question is, would the Patriots be willing to bring in Dalton?
Jacoby Brissett spent last season as the starter for the Indianapolis Colts. With the Colts signing Philip Rivers, that makes Brissett available for the Patriots. Like Brian Hoyer, whom New England brought back he’s familiar with the system. Brissett isn’t a bad quarterback as he was 5-2 as the Colts starter last season before getting hurt. Jacoby Brissett is still young and seeing he’s been with the Patriots, it wouldn’t shock me if he’s brought back.
Stick With What They Have
New England may stick with the guys they have on the roster. As of now, they have Brian Hoyer, Jarrett Stidham and Cody Kessler on their roster. New England could also look to draft a quarterback this year and have him learn under Hoyer. Brian Hoyer is good for a couple of games, but I’m not completely sold on him as the opening day starter. Whoever is the starter, they’ll have some major shoes to fill.
