Madden shows off first virtual look at Cam Newton in a Patriots jersey
The big news of Sunday was the New England Patriots taking a flyer on former Heisman Trophy winner and 2015 NFL MVP Cam Newton.
Now, the former Auburn star will compete with fellow former Auburn QB Jarrett Stidham for the Patriots’ starting job in 2020.
Since team workouts and practices aren’t currently allowed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Madden video game franchise was the first to release an image of Newton in a Patriots jersey. Take a look at the short video below:
Newton was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft and spent the 2011-2019 seasons with the Carolina Panthers.
How will he fare in New England? We’ll find out this fall.
