Playing behind the Patriots OL and having Belichick, perhaps the best Head coach in the NFL, will give Cam a chance to shine,if he id anywhere close to his 2015 form. Here's wishing him good health and lots of of success.
Dude Im not sure what kind of point you are trying to make.
Bill has swung and missed on plenty of prospects. You could even count Tom Brady in that category. If he knew that Brady would turn out to be the guy he is today then you could argue that they should have drafted in in the 1st round.
Signing Cam is a good low risk high reward move, but that is because Cam agreed to a massive pay cut. If he would have done that in Carolina he would still be here. Also he is a FORMER MVP. Its not like this is the end of the 2015 season and that is the Newton he signed. Literally only 1 team wanted him. Heck even Ron passed on him and he would know about his health better than anyone.
I hope Cam does well but as others have said, you cannot divorce the decision to move away from Cam with the fact that he wanted a new contract. Given that he sat in free agency for such a long time proves that this decision was correct.
My frustration is with people on this site that get so attached to a player that they would enjoy seeing the team suffer as a result - even when that decision had the best interest of the team in mind.
