You don't have to look very hard to see that the change up in New England and Tampa have been massive. Tom Brady WAS the Patriots. He was their quarterback for two whole decades, but now he's in Florida living it up with a big contract and great wide receivers. Cam Newton has struggled with injuries but is still a former NFL MVP and the Patriots signed him to a crazy favorable deal.
Newton signed a one-year "incentive laden" deal that is worth up to $7.5 million dollars. Not even half of what Tom Brady is making (two years, $50 million).
But who is getting the better deal? The Buccaneers are a team with great wide receivers, a good tight end core, and now one of the best quarterbacks in the league. The Patriots get the flexibility to upgrade their roster with a cheap quarterback who is hungry to reclaim a top spot in the NFL. Of course, still being coached by the great Bill Belichick. You tell us who got the better deal!
