ESPN senior writer says Saints are a 'wild card' if Cam Newton tests free agency

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; He's another Kaepernick waiting to not happen. Some garbage team might pounce on him, but I can't see any winning record team thinking he could improve their QB play... certainly not us....

I've never seen anything from Newton as a player that would suggest he is not smart enough. For me its more about the type of character he seems to be.

As an heir to Brees I'd prefer a pocket QB with a cannon. Mainly because that is the type of football I like to watch.

Chicago would be a better fit, since they're desperate to bring some excitement to that franchise and Trubinsky isn't the future.

The problem is that college isnít developing QBs like that anymore...the offensive game planning and strategy has changed...more spread, read option...mobile QBs. This in turn is also affecting the technique of the OL and mainly the Tackles.

Itís going to get harder and harder to find QBs that are molded and developed like that going forward.

A very realistic option in 2020 for Newton.

Mitch needs a new start elsewhere. It appears Ryan Pace and the rest of the Chicago scouting/brain trust missed on this one big time.

Hindsight is 20/20 but I wonder what the scouts saw in Mitch that that didn't see from Watson (played in the ACC w/Mitch) & Pat M ?

Three years later, Chicago is looking for another franchise QB to lead the troops.

Okay. Letís say youíre right. And? Gay people canít play football? Look, politics and who you like and dislike play way too much of a role in how yíall feel about the players. Rich Incognito was basically shown to be a racist but if heís an improvement over Peat then bring his ass in. I donít give a ****. They donít have to be my friends. Go get the job done.

I donít even think Payton wants that kind of Quarterback anymore. You either adjust with the game or get left behind.
