Could the Patriots still consider Cam Newton as their backup?

There are reports emerging now that Cam Newton is willing to take a backup role for this season. The news shouldn’t be surprising, teams around the NFL haven’t been lining up to acquire Newton, so if his team is floating it out that he’s willing to be a backup QB, it probably helps his case to secure a job and stay in the NFL. We’ve seen recent examples of established quarterbacks taking backup roles hoping to find their place back as a starter. The Buffalo Bills recently signed Mitch Trubisky, and Jameis Winston backed up Drew Brees in New Orleans last season, and he’s now been handed the starting job. The Cam Newton has led to some Patriots fans asking, why can’t Newton just backup Mac Jones with the Patriots.
