Now that the 2020 season for the New England Patriots is over, questions can be asked about the team’s future. After Sunday’s victory over the Gates, coach Bill Belisik asked a question about A. Sunday morning report From ESPN on the future of the quarterback Cam Newton.
Here the exchange.
Q: There was a report on ESPN today, there is an understanding between you and Cam Newton that you are going in different directions this off season. Is there an understanding that this was Cam’s last match?
A: Is this another of your anonymous reports?
Q: That was from Adam Shifter this morning.
A: I don’t think that’s what Adam said. You should talk to Adam about that then. Great question, thank you.
Here is what Adam said: “Both sides expect to take them to a different place and a different direction in 2021 It is possible that Cam Newton will move in and the Patriots are looking for a new midfielder For next season. “
Later on the press’s availability, ESPN.com’s Mike Rees said, “Asking Adam, he got in touch with him as a colleague, and he wanted to make sure that what he said was accurately represented, that it was not a report, was part of a comprehensive discussion.”
Newton was asked separately, without referring to the report / discussion / whatever, whether he expected a comeback.
“Listen, I have my desires,” Newton told reporters. “I know where my heart is. I know things, who I am. But as far as that, I can’t talk about it now. But all my time here in New England has been a blessing. I’ve learned so much about myself, about my amazing colleagues, and amazing training. Yeah, just me.” I see how it will go … from there. “
Unless the shifter report / discussion / whatever is inaccurate – and he said what he said – it will not go anywhere.
