The New England Patriots have reached an agreement with former Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press.

The Pats are bringing the 2015 NFL Most Valuable Player aboard to help the team move on from three-time MVP Tom Brady, who joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this off-season.
