10. Cam Newton
One of the few players on this list with a redemption story, Newton is currently reigniting his career with the New England Patriots. However, this comes after an extraordinary decline that saw him spend significant time as a free agent. Finally, Bill Belichick decided to take a chance and brought him in to fill Tom Brady’s boots.
The 2015 MVP regressed significantly in 2019 as a combination of injuries and a lack of motivation affected him. After suffering a Lisfranc fracture, the Panthers placed him on injury reserve. There were big questions over his ability to convince a franchise that he should play but he has a second chance.
