If the Houston Texans decide to look at free agent quarterbacks for a season why not have discussions with Cam Newton? Newton is coming off spending a season – and this past training camp/preseason – with the New England Patriots. Before that Newton was one of the very best quarterbacks in the league with the Panthers.

Newton could be an excellent player to take over a roster spot vacated by a possible Deshaun Watson trade, but everyone should remember Newton isn’t the same player who led the Panthers to the Super Bowl.

One plus is Newton knows what it takes to be a winner in the NFL, and being a past NFL MVP, Newton would bring a lot of value to the Texans in 2021. Newton playing for the Texans could revive his career, as the Houston Texans are known for their one-year contracts to help players regain their skills and foundation as a player.

Newton wouldn’t lead the Texans to the Super Bowl in ’21, or even an division title this season, but like with Nick Foles, Newton could take the role as a mentor of Davis Mills to see how he can learn with a past NFL MVP on the roster.

Also with an addition of Newton he could help keep the Texans offense competitive, which could make this season interesting with the on-the-field product.
