Free-agent QB Cam Newton recently talked to the Seattle Seahawks and mentioned via his YouTube channel that he has received interest from multiple teams.
Huddle Up: The Seahawks confirmed they have touched base with Newton as well, head coach Pete Carroll told 710 ESPN. Seattle is in a bit of a precarious position because Russell Wilson (finger) may only be out two more games, but those are two games the team cannot afford to lose. While the Seahawks did not place much trust into interim starter Geno Smith on Sunday night, it seems unlikely Newton could learn enough of the playbook to be of any more help before Wilson returns.

New England Patriots QB Cam Newton was released Tuesday, Aug. 31.
Huddle Up: There's the first shocker of the day. Rookie Mac Jones' regime begins, and Newton will look to latch on to a shaky quarterback situation or wait for an injury. Jones is a solid QB2 with some upside and a learning curve expected.

New England Patriots QB Cam Newton played a few snaps with the starters Sunday, Aug. 29, before QB Mac Jones entered with the backups in what could have been an indication that Newton is in the lead in the competition. Head coach Bill Belichick refused to name a starter.
Huddle Up: Newton showed flashes early last year, but he has been a shell of himself for a few years now after shoulder issues. He's, at-best, a QB2 with minimal upside. Jones would be a QB2 with some upside if he's the starter.

New England Patriots QB Cam Newton is back at practice Thursday, Aug. 26, after his five-day cadence due to COVID-19 protocols.
Huddle Up: Newton may be slipping in the battle for the starting job and is a QB2 in fantasy regardless.

New England Patriots QB Mac Jones has shown the 'week-to-week, day-to-day, play-to-play competency' to win the starting job over Cam Newton, according to Tom Curran of NBC Sports Boston.
'There's no on-field reason for Cam Newton to ever take a meaningful, regular-season snap for the Patriots while Mac Jones is upright and able,' according to Curran.
Huddle Up: Newton's recent COVID mishap might have been just the opportunity that Jones needed to win the job. With that said, it still remains unlikely head coach Bill Belichick would roll with the rookie over the veteran initially unless the latter was clearly outperforming him in practice. If Jones does win the job, he'll likely settle in as a mid-tier QB2 at best in 2021.

New England Patriots QB Cam Newton will be away from the team for five days due to a misunderstanding of COVID-19 tests conducted away from NFL facilities. As required by the NFL-NFLPA protocols, he will be subject to the five-day entry cadence process before returning to the facility.
Huddle Up: Newton might be questionable for the next preseason game, which would give Mac Jones an opening for the starting gig. Keep tabs on this situation throughout the week.
