Pats bring Cam back

They didn't bring him back to be an insurance policy. He is back to be the starting QB. 

Yeah, this isn’t true either.  His salary is a backup QB salary at $6 mil.  
I think that BB will either go for Watson or Jimmy G, or trade up to get a top 4 QB in the draft.

 

Patriots are looking very, very good right now.  One or if not THE best TE group in the NFL, solid WRs, upgraded front seven, better O-line with Brown...

BB turned this around quickly !

I think they draft Mac Jones. He will be there when the Pats pick more than likely and he would probably do well in BB's system. I can see that. Cam could still start but BB may have him there just to insure he has 2 QB's that gives him a chance to win. Cam as a backup would be great in a pinch.

Cam is being paid $14 million. He is there to start and I think he will be the starting QB for the Patriots and have a great season. They brought Cam back and they signed two really good tight ends and two WRs. That shows where BB thought the problem lied. They also traded to get a very good LT back and they have several players coming back after opting out because of Covid. I agree they are going to be a factor and Newton will be the field leader.

Oh really?  Thoughts now?

 

Thinking BB will go all-in for Watson.

Cam is still your QB. The roster is better but totally overpaid for most of the guys you signed on Day 1. Isn't that a big no, no for Bill?  I mean fools gold, right?

 

I would be totally shocked if Houston traded within the AFC much less to the Patriots. But stranger things have happened. lol

The full contract is WORTH 13.6 million IF they make the right playoffs, if he wins MVP, win the SB, and Sb MVP.. he is only guaranteed 3.5 million.. he is being paid backup money.  They will IMO trade up to get a top 5 QB my guess to 7 so they have their choice of Lance,Jones or Fields.

I had already read it. Of course they are not guaranteeing anything. They never do but Cam will be the starter and that team is better on paper right now than the Colts but it is too early to make that determination but the Patriots are far ahead right now including at the QB position in my opinion.

Cam only makes $14 mil if they win the SB.

if he does that, he’s worth the price.  
He gets up to $10 mil if they make the playoffs.

Again, worth it.

His base salary is around $6 mil.

 

Yeah, that’s fine for a backup.

It seems it will be Cam and a rookie. Do you expect Belichick to draft a QB at 15?

He isn't going to be a backup and I don't think they will move up to draft a QB either.

    • Positions that are clear (real and perceived) QB1, X-WR, RB1, APB, RT, RG, C, LG, 3T, NT, CB1 (Rhodes), NB (Moore), WILL, TE1 and TE2.   The rest, have some element of fog (real or perceived) IMO.   Offense QB2 - If Eason is clearly #2, not sure whey we waste a draft pick on another QB. I didn't get it then, and not now lol. Z - Hilton his aging. Pretty clear the plan when drafting Campbell was that he would gradually work outside. Slot - PC is the obvious guy if healthy, but if he is healthy, and they start moving him outside, we still have questions.  LT - Fisher is clear if he returns to form. If not, a lot of fog. TE3 - Granson is a wildcard but assuming they want to use him as a move-slot-TE like they tried to use Burton. Not really a true TE   Defense L and RDE - time share here. There are several rotations I can see here, and likely won't be set early. MIKE - Oke is the clear leader, but there will be a lot of eyes on his run D. A time share here would not shock me. SAM - we don't use it a lot, so who knows. I could even see Oke playing SAM and Franklin handling MIKE on those SAM downs. LB Depth - who knows. Will we ever see Speed emerge? CB2 and CB Detph - RYS vs Carrie vs Tell vs Rogers. Nothing would surprise me. FS - Blackmon needs to take a big step forward in deep coverage. If not, I could see a rotation here. SS - Willis is very solid, but I could see him getting pushed by Shawn Davis.  
    • I think the QB position is a little unique in terms of depth expectation and planning.  And it depends on your expectations of the team.  See below in my response to CR91 for more.   Not sure I understand. How was letting Walker go an "answer".      Couple points here...  Hoyer's loss vs Miami was 99% on Reich. After Hoyer played pretty well vs Pitt (coming in cold) in which he had 3 TDs / 1 INT and completed 65% of passes, Reich chose to 1) not practice Hoyer with the 1s leading up to the Miami game, and 2) chose to throw it all over the school yard (around 40 attempts) vs a team that was horrible vs the run. Just super bad game plan and prep. I agree that a pricey vet QB, or spending much on a backup QB in general is pretty much a waste. That is, unless you are a true SB contender going into the year (and can afford it). I've always felt if your starting QB goes down for the year, might as well accept things and embrace a higher draft pick come next draft. It's extremely rare to go deep with a backup. Even Foles wasn't seen as a high end backup. He was just off a cheap one year deal, and was contemplating retirement. He came back to Philly for a moderate deal, which most thought was even too much. That was purely luck. Just my opinion, but I like riding out Eason and trying to develop him along the way. And trade him (if he's not in contention for starting job) later if you can get picks, or keep him if he's decent and cheap. I, like you, like what the Pats do most years.
    • I don’t think a decision can be made until the preseason when we all see if Eason can play.  There are guys out there like Barkley, who can get you through a game or two in a pinch.  From what I read the Bears will probably keep Foles simply because his contract makes it easy for them   But my point was that it’s interesting that most of of aren’t really concerned about the backup QB even though it’s the position that we have least experience.
