Richard Sherman Rips Cam Newton's Reported Patriots Contract as 'Disgusting'

Richard Sherman ripped NFL teams after Cam Newton signed a one-year deal with the New England Patriots, calling it "disgusting" the former MVP had to sign for such a small amount.

Newton's one-year contract has a maximum value of $7.5 million but is incentive-laden and is a "bare-minimum" deal, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Sherman's point regarding quarterback salaries is valid. There are 18 quarterbacks who are currently under contract for an average of more than $20 million per season, many of whom lack Newton's resume.
