Patriots are bringing back Cam Newton but it doesn’t preclude them from making another QB move in the weeks to come, per league sources. This move locks in a QB heading into free agency. https://t.co/hgf4ZhqM5w

On Cam Newton's 1-year contract, a total of $6 million is tied to honors and how far the Patriots might advance in the playoffs, per sources.
Heavy incentives on a deal that could be worth close to $14 million, as @AdamSchefter reported.
