To say that Cam Newton’s time with the New England Patriots has been forgettable would be a complete understatement. This notion becomes even more relevant after it was revealed on Tuesday that the Pats had decided to cut the former league MVP from their 53-man roster.

The Boston Globe’s Jim McBride was the first to break the news, which was later confirmed by several news outlets. Cam Newton’s tenure with the Pats comes to an end after just one season with the team.

Newton’s departure opens the door for Mac Jones to take over as New England’s starting quarterback. It was earlier reported that Jones and Newton were neck-and-neck for the QB1 job for the Pats, which makes the team’s recent decision to cut Newton altogether even more shocking. Not only did they hand over the keys to Jones, but New England even went as far as getting rid of his competition completely.

Newton turned 32 in May, and there’s no denying that he’s no spring chicken. However, this is a SuperBowl champion we’re talking about here, a three-time Pro Bowler, and a former All Pro quarterback. How the mighty have fallen.

Cam Newton won’t be without a team for long, though, with several teams from around the league expected to pounce on the former first overall pick. However, It’s not likely that Newton will enter the new campaign as a starting quarterback, and he’ll probably need to settle for a reserve role.

At this point is it safe to say that Cam Newton’s glory days are officially over?
