For all the talk of Newman potentially being a mid round pick, he was already waived by Philly.

I know nothing about him other than it doesn't appear he ever lived up to his hype. Most teams generally have a developmental qb though. Everyone seems to think he has arm talent, maybe he could go on the practice squad for a couple years and work with Flip and learn under fields and whoever the backup is. If they could develop him at all maybe you could flip him for a decent pick in a couple years.

Definitely extremely wishful thinking, but until they have another developmental option it is low risk

This is the guy that all the Georgia fans were saying used COVID as an excuse and backed out for the season when it looked like he wouldn't get the starting job?

This was the rumor.

I wouldn't mind it if we brought him in and left him to learn and let him be the gimmicky Hill QB who runs some option plays. I don't think we have a rookie QB , other than Fields, on the roster. Newman would be a nice mould that would cost us nothing.

There's gotta be more to this release cause there's no reason to drop him this early in OTA's.
