Cowboys Already Expressing Interest In Cam Newton

Cam Newton has been a man without a home for less than a day, but already, at least one new suitor is emerging.

Per veteran NFL insider Josina Anderson, no less than the Dallas Cowboys are among the possibilities.

And when it comes to backups for starting quarterback Dak Prescott, hey, you could do worse than Newton -- who started for the Patriots last season but was released Tuesday ahead of the deadline for NFL cuts. (You can read more about that from OutKick's Armando Salguero right here.)

Anderson indicated that nothing is imminent when it comes to Newton, only that the Cowboys are interested. Or seemingly so.

"My understanding is the Dallas Cowboys will do their due diligence in reviewing QB Cameron Newton's newfound availability, per sources," she wrote. "Will look at it all across the board with additional talent hitting the market, including today."

Newton, 32, started 15 of 16 games with New England last season, though it was a rocky year overall in the Patriots' first run in a long, long time without Tom Brady. They finished 7-9 as Newton went 242-of-368 passing for 2,657 total yards and a QB rating of 65.8. He threw for eight touchdowns, compared to 10 interceptions.

With rookie Mac Jones on board, it probably made sense for New England to move on from Newton. But he says he's doing a-OK in spite of it all.

“I really appreciate all the love and support during this time but I must say … Please don’t feel sorry for me. #Imgood,” Newton posted on Instagram.

Of course, he'll likely be doing even better once he finds a new team. And it seems to Cowboys are among those in the mix.
