Newton was the starter for the Patriots during the 2020 NFL season. He struggled to rediscover his elite form and threw just eight touchdown passes with 10 interceptions in 15 games. In fairness, the Patriots failed to surround him with enough talent at the wide receiver and tight end positions.
With a full offseason and hopefully close-to-normal offseason, it's possible that Newton enters the 2021 season in a better position to succeed.
As you might expect, this news fired off some passionate takes in the Twitter world.
Here's some of the notable Twitter reaction to Newton's reported return to the Patriots.
