Newton released a teaser video earlier this Wednesday for his weekly “Funky Friday” where he hinted at wanting to get a lot of things off his chest. “I have a lot of things I need to get off my chest,” Newton said in the video. Clearing rumors on his retirement, he added, “This is not a retirement speech and I have a lot of football still in me.” 

Adding to the teaser video, Newton released another teaser where he sheds further light on his future, albeit with a bit of cockiness. In the video, he says, “Listen, I’ma remove all doubts, I said it once and I’ll say it again. There’s not 32 guys (quarterbacks) out there that’s better than me, bro!”

The New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick expressed his disappointment over Newton’s release and how taking such decisions has always been difficult. He expressed gratitude to the players who have always given theirs all over the years.

Speaking on WEEI Radio, Bill said, “It’s always difficult when you have to reduce your roster. A lot of guys that worked hard. A lot of guys that performed well and had either good years for us, or good careers. I respect all those things, but each year is its own year and I have to do what I feel like is best for the football team and so regards to every decision, that’s what I try to do. It’s always tough to tell guys who have worked hard and have given you all they had that you’re not able to keep them.”

Belichick further added, “He came in here, he worked hard. He gave us everything we had. Right now, our future is going to be Mac [Jones] at quarterback, and that is where we’re going to go.”
