The New England Patriots threw a giant-sized curve ball to the masses this past weekend, signing former NFL MVP Cam Newton.

While it’s not yet known whether Newton will be the Patriots’ starter i 2020, former New England star Tom Brady has decided to chime in.

It’s absolutely tremendous, and continues to show us why Brady is so darn good at this social media thing.

What’s not to like about this? Julian Edelman welcoming Newton to the team. Mr. Brady telling his former receiver that he is still his No. 1.

For his part, Edelman firmly believed that Brady would remain with the Patriots before the six-time Super Bowl champ ultimately signed in Tampa Bay.

Maybe the veteran receiver now has new bestie. Time will tell on that front.
