Cam Newton will be tasked with mastering the new and apparently complicated New England Patriots‘ playbook as he enters his first season with the organization.

On Friday, Newton revealed that it was wide receiver Julian Edelman who gave him a head’s up about the playbook.

CAM NEWTON ON PLAYING IN NEW ENGLAND: ‘IT’S JUST A BREATH OF FRESH AIR TO BE HONEST WITH YOU’

“We were both excited just to be on the phone with each other,” the one-time NFL MVP said, according to NBC Sports Boston. “Then all of a sudden he just said, ‘Hey bro, this s—t is calculus.’

“He said it and it was just funny. From that whole 15-minute conversation, that’s the only thing that I just remembered: Calculus.”

Newton said the playbook, for him, boils down to just football.

“At the end of the day, football is still football and you just can’t make too much on it than what it already is. Josh (McDaniels) has been there every step of the way as well as (quarterbacks coach) Jedd (Fisch). Just been hammering away. All the quarterbacks have been trying to learn this whole system from what it is”

After a long offseason, Newton finally found a home with the Patriots. He will still have to stave off Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer for the starting job.

Minnesota Vikings linebacker Cameron Smith will be forced to miss the 2020 season after finding out he needs open-heart surgery to address an issue revealed through a COVID-19 test.

Smith announced Saturday he learned of a serious heart condition after testing positive for the coronavirus.

STEELERS’ MIKE TOMLIN NOT ‘EXTREMELY CONFIDENT’ ABOUT 2020 NFL SEASON OVER CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC

“Earlier this week I found out I need open-heart surgery to fix a bicuspid aortic valve that I was born with. Although this will unfortunately end my 2020 season, it is really a blessing that we found this as my heart is severely enlarged and wouldn’t have lasted much longer. I found this out after I tested positive for COVID and had to have further testing done as protocol. The Lord works in mysterious ways, but I could really feel him on this one!” Smith wrote.

GIANTS’ JOE JUDGE SAYS NO ‘PSEUDO-BUBBLE’ BUT PLAYERS SHOULD CONSIDER ISOLATING: ‘THAT’S A SACRIFICE WE HAVE TO MAKE’

“There is a surgery that will allow me to continue to play football as soon as I am healed and cleared and I didn’t think twice about going with that one. By no means am I ready to be done playing football, there is still so much more I want to accomplish on the field. I’m going to attack this like everything else I have in life. Already looking forward to the comeback!”

Smith, 23, would have been entering his second season with the Vikings. Minnesota selected him in the fifth round of the 2019 draft out of USC.

He appeared in five games for the Vikings. He recorded eight total tackles in those games.

The Washington Football Team’s next change after removing the Redskins’ name from its organization, changing the uniforms, and taking the nickname off the walls in its facility was to take aim at a Twitter hashtag.

Washington announced Sunday that it was changing up its hashtag, which fans can use to follow the team and conversations surrounding the organization. It was going to go from #HTTR – standing for Hail to the Redskins – to #1932 – the year in which the organization was founded.

WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM MAKES 2 NOTICEABLE CHANGES IN POST-REDSKINS ERA

As Pro Football Talk pointed out, Twitter doesn’t allow hashtags for numbers, making Washington’s idea null and void.

“ok so no new hashtag yet,” the team tweeted. “give us your options of what you want!”

Last week, the team removed the phrase “Hail to the Redskins,” which had been a rallying cry for fans for several years, from a wall and repainted it with the words “For Old DC.” The team could seemingly use #ForOldDC if it needed to.

WASHINGTON REDSKINS RETIRE TEAM NAME, LOGO; NO REPLACEMENT ANNOUNCED

The team also unveiled how their helmets are going to look. Without a new team name, Washington showed its fans that it was going to go with individual players’ numbers on helmets this season.

It appeared Washington is doing the best it can to remove itself from the Redskins name after deciding that it was time to retire the moniker over racial connotations against Native Americans.

“On July 3rd, we announced the commencement of a thorough review of the team’s name. That review has begun in earnest. As part of this process, we want to keep our sponsors, fans and community apprised of our thinking as we go forward,” the franchise said in a statement last month.

“Today, we are announcing we will be retiring the Redskins name and logo upon completion of this review.

“[Team owner] Dan Snyder and Coach [Ron] Rivera are working closely to develop a new name and design approach that will enhance the standing of our proud, tradition rich franchise and inspire our sponsors, fans and community for the next 100 years.”

Captain Munnerlyn, a free-agent NFL defensive back who last played for the Carolina Panthers, was reportedly arrested on a fugitive warrant at Miami International Airport on Friday for allegedly writing bad checks.

Munnerlyn, 32, was about to board a flight to Mexico before he was arrested, FOX Sports Radio reported. He is reportedly facing the charges in Las Vegas.

WASHINGTON RELEASES RB GUICE AFTER DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ARREST

“This is a complete misunderstanding,” Rickey Patel, Munnerlyn’s attorney, told FOX Sports Radio. “And we will clear this situation immediately.”

Munnerlyn was a seventh-round draft pick of the Panthers in 2009. He didn’t become a full-time starter with the team until the 2011 season. He led the league with two interceptions returned for a touchdown during the 2013 season.

GIANTS’ DEANDRE BAKER CHARGED WITH FOUR COUNTS OF ARMED ROBBERY IN FLORIDA INCIDENT

His first stint with the Panthers would come to an end after the 2013 season. He would sign with the Minnesota Vikings and play three seasons with the team. He rejoined the Panthers for the 2017 and 2018 seasons but hasn’t played in the NFL since then.

He signed with the Buffalo Bills prior to the start of the 2019 season but was cut right before Week 1.

Over the course of his career, he’s recorded 12 interceptions, 10.5 sacks, and five touchdowns. He’s never made a Pro Bowl or an All-Pro team.

The Washington Football Team released running back Derrius Guice on Friday after he was charged in multiple domestic violence incidents.

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Department told The Associated Press that Guice was arrested on one count of strangulation, three counts of assault and battery and one count of destruction of property. Strangulation is a Class 6 felony in Virginia.

WASHINGTON’S DAN SNYDER FILES $10M DEFAMATION LAWSUIT OVER STORIES FALSELY TYING HIM TO SEX TRAFFICKING, EPSTEIN: REPORT

The team said in a statement it learned of a potential domestic violence situation Thursday, immediately notified the NFL and met with Guice to excuse him from football activities pending a review. After learning of the multiple charges against him, reviewing the case and discussing the matter, Washington said it decided to release Guice.

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Department said the incidents were reported to the Montgomery County Police Department in Maryland where the victim lives. Loudoun officials then learned July 22 that they happened in their jurisdiction in February, March and April.

Guice, 23, turned himself in and was released on $10,000 bond, according to the Sheriff’s Department.

Washington selected Guice in the second round of the 2018 draft out of LSU. The Louisiana native tore the ACL in his left knee in the preseason and didn’t make his pro debut until 2019.

Guice played in just five games last season after injuring his his right knee and then his left knee again. He was expected to be a part of Washington’s backfield and was signed through the 2021 season as part of his rookie contract.

Washington NFL team owner Daniel Snyder sued an India-based online media company on Friday for defamation, alleging the news site accepted money to publish damaging, unfounded rumors about him.

Snyder’s lawsuit against the company, Media Entertainment Arts WorldWide, includes excerpts of now-deleted stories accusing the billionaire of involvement in sex trafficking and linking him to the deceased sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, the New York Times reported.

NFL GREAT BRETT FAVRE: GOLFING WITH TRUMP WAS ‘AN HONOR’

Filed in California federal court and in New Delhi, the lawsuit further claims the website published the rumors from social media platforms despite knowing they were false.

“While Mr. Snyder understands that truthful criticism about the Washington Football Team comes with the territory of owning the team, malicious criminal allegations cross the line,” Snyder’s attorney said in a statement. “He intends to hold all of those responsible for this defamation accountable, and will donate any proceeds recovered in the lawsuit to charity.”

The filing comes after weeks of intense scrutiny of the Washington NFL team’s operations. A group of 15 female former employees accused executives of sexual harassment and verbal abuse in a damning report from the Washington Post and the team is in the process of rebranding after retiring its “Redskins” nickname and logo under pressure from sponsors.

NFL PLAYERS FACE MAJOR FINES FOR VIOLATING CORONAVIRUS PROTOCOLS

Snyder is seeking $10 million in damages and an admission as to whether the site was paid to post the rumors.

A Washington NFL team representative did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Social media speculation ran rampant ahead of the release of the Washington Post’s report, with users on Twitter, Reddit and other platforms claiming inside knowledge of its details. The Post report did not mention any of the allegations included in Media Entertainment Arts WorldWide’s articles.

MEA Worldwide co-founder Nirnay Chowdhary acknowledged missteps in an interview with the New York Times, but denied claims that someone paid to plant the stories.

Chowdhary said the website plans to investigate how the errors were made.

Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin didn’t appear to be too hopeful about the 2020 NFL season getting underway during the coronavirus pandemic as some other players have been.

Tomlin was asked as part of a two-part question during a video conference with reporters Thursday what gave him confidence that the NFL could actually have a season.

66 NFL PLAYERS OPT OUT OF PLAYING THE 2020 SEASON OVER CORONAVIRUS CONCERNS

“…I don’t know if I am extremely confident. I respect the challenges these circumstance has presented to other leagues, some of which we are witnessing. I think we are all proceeding with caution and working extremely hard not to become part of that,” Tomlin said, according to The Athletic.

“We have some people in leadership positions — [NFL chief medical officer Dr. Allen Sills] — and others medical professionals who have led the charge for us globally in the NFL and we are working out tails off to adhere to it and hoping that is enough coupled with personal decision-making that needs to be exhibited continually by our guys throughout the course of this.”

RAIDERS COACHING STAFF SENDS WARNING TO PLAYERS BY PRETENDING JON GRUDEN WAS HOSPITALIZED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS

More than 65 players decided to opt out of the 2020 season before Thursday’s 4 p.m. ET deadline. Tomlin said he wasn’t aware of any players from the Steelers deciding to opt out.

New York Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker was formally charged Friday with four counts of robbery with a firearm in relation to a May incident, Florida officials announced.

Baker, 22, could face a minimum of 10 years and up to life in prison if he is convicted, the New York Daily News reported. Quinton Dunbar, who was also arrested in the Miramar incident, was not charged due to “insufficient evidence,” according to Broward County prosecutors.

NFL PLAYERS DEANDRE BAKER, QUINTON DUNBAR ACCUSED OF PAYING ROBBERY VICTIMS TO CHANGE TESTIMONY: REPORT

Baker and Dunbar were allegedly at a cookout on May 13 when a fight broke out and Baker purportedly pulled out a handgun, according to an arrest warrant. Baker allegedly took part in the robbery of several valuable watches, including an $18,000 Rolex watch, a $25,000 Hublot and an Audemars Piguet, according to police.

Authorities said some people at the party believed it was a planned robbery because there were three getaway cars strategically positioned to “expedite an immediate departure” after they were done taking certain valuables. Baker and Dunbar were also accused of paying off victims of the robbery.

GIANTS’ DEANDRE BAKER PLACED ON COMMISSIONER’S EXEMPT LIST

Bradford Cohen, Baker’s attorney, has denied the allegations against his client and told ESPN in July that he submitted affidavits from witnesses at the party who said the cornerback is innocent. Baker reportedly passed a lie detector test.

He has since apologized to the Giants. The team has not released a statement on the formal charges.

The Washington Football Team revealed two key changes to its organization this week.

The first came with a helmet change. Since the team retired the name “Redskins” last month, it had to decide on new uniforms and a new logo for the helmet. Without a new team name, Washington showed its fans that it was going to go with individual players’ numbers on helmets this season.

That wasn’t the only change that was made.

Washington also made a change to its facilities. The team removed the phrase “Hail to the Redskins,” which had been a rallying cry for fans for several years, from a wall and repainted it with the words “For Old DC.”

It appeared Washington is doing the best it can to remove itself from the Redskins name after deciding that it was time to retire the moniker over racial connotations against Native Americans.

“On July 3rd, we announced the commencement of a thorough review of the team’s name. That review has begun in earnest. As part of this process, we want to keep our sponsors, fans and community apprised of our thinking as we go forward,” the franchise said in a statement last month.

“Today, we are announcing we will be retiring the Redskins name and logo upon completion of this review.

No new name was announced.
