The Patriots shocked the NFL Sunday when they signed veteran quarterback Cam Newton to their pool of possible successors to Tom Brady, and the 4-time Super Bowl MVP confirmed his aid.
Right after the NFL’s formal Instagram declared that New England experienced signed Newton to a 1-yr offer, Brady tagged Beneath Armour, which both of those quarterbacks have exclusive outfits and shoe strains for, in a comment and extra two ‘100’ emojis.
“@underarmour QBs,” Brady wrote.
The 42-calendar year-outdated Brady signed a two-12 months, $50 million deal with the Buccaneers in March just after 20 years in New England. It was predicted that the Patriots’ 2019 fourth-round choose Jarrett Stidham would be Brady’s successor, with Brian Hoyer serving as backup. But owning Newton in the combine should really shake up the depth chart.
Newton, 31, performed the 1st 9 several years of his NFL profession with the Carolina Panthers, who drafted him very first all round in 2011. He attained a few Professional Bowl nods and was the league Most Worthwhile Participant and Offensive Player of the Calendar year in 2015.
But a slew of accidents prevented Newton from performing at the degree he did through his Pro Bowl seasons. On March 26, the Panthers signed previous Saints QB Teddy Bridgewater to a a few-year offer. Just days previously, the corporation gave Newton authorization to search for a trade just before in the long run releasing him.
