Cam Newton is back & free agency opens: What this means for the Pats ft. Jim McBride

Jim McBride has called The Boston Globe home for more than 30 years, starting as a co-op student from Suffolk University and now as Patriots beat reporter. He's here with Gasper to discuss where he thinks the Patriots are heading in a pivotal off-season, why Bill Belichick still thinks he can win with Cam Newton, the most important free agent the Patriots need to retain, and the former Patriots QB that McBride thinks could be due for a second act. Like many of us, McBride’s life was upended by the pandemic, but that didn’t stop his Patriots coverage. McBride was the only reporter traveling to cover the team for road games last season, and even he agrees that fans in the stand will help boost the Patriots' product.
