Cam Newton Rumors: Browns Spoke to QB; Patriots Only Team to Make Contract Offer

The New England Patriots and Cleveland Browns were the only teams to speak with free-agent quarterback Cam Newton prior to him signing with the Pats, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Newton, who played nine seasons with the Carolina Panthers before they released him this offseason, only had an offer from New England. Talks with Cleveland "never really went anywhere," per Schefter.

The 2015 NFL MVP inked a one-year, incentive-laden deal with New England, per Schefter and ESPN's Chris Mortensen.
