Cam Newton signing with the Patriots seems like a bit of an odd pairing at first but it could be the move of the offseason.

In his one season at Auburn, Cam Newton set the college football world on fire on his way to a national championship and Heisman trophy. Newton, who would go on to be the first overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, would go on to continue that success in the NFL.

From 2011-18 Newton’s 240 touchdowns are more than any other NFL quarterback during that timespan other than Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers.
