    Cam Newton struggled over the course of his first season in New England, which cast further doubt about the quarterback's future in the NFL.
    Newton himself doesn't seem to be at all worried about getting another starting opportunity in the league.
    The veteran quarterback on Thursday released an Instagram video of himself in the gym, something Newton did quite often leading up to the 2020 campaign as well. The 2015 NFL MVP also delivered a message seemingly directed at his doubters.

    Mel Kiper Jr. has the Patriots making a major splash in the latest version of his 2021 NFL mock draft.

The Patriots, of course, currently are among the most QB-needy teams in the league, and Bill Belichick and Co. might need to be aggressive if they want to land one of the top five prospects at the position this year.
    What would the Patriots need to surrender in order to make their way into the top 10 of the draft? Kiper's...
