3. New England Patriots

Cam Newton has looked like a shell of the guy who won the NFL’s MVP award just six years ago. His production has declined in nearly every category. While the Patriots have played 2019 fourth-round pick, Jarrett Stidham, at times in 2020, he hasn’t looked like the answer to the Patriots quarterback woes either.

We’ve all heard the saying that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Bill Belichick and the Patriots embody that saying more than any other NFL franchise. They consistently find players who have failed on other teams and then figure out what their strengths are and then turn them into serviceable players.

New England would likely figure out a way to build a scheme to Trubisky’s strengths. That would include using his mobility more, while also having him complete quick and short passes that are designed to get the ball out of his hands quickly.

All throughout 2020, the Patriots experimented by running schemes that would require the use of Cam Newton’s legs. Essentially, with a mobile quarterback, they were able to see what works and what didn’t. By bringing in Trubisky, they’d be able to run similar concepts to Newton, however, modify them after seeing what did and didn’t work with Newton.
