The New England Patriot's latest sign-on meets up with teammate Julian Edelman for a workout session.
With his new signing coming a bit late, Cameron Newton has had to hit the ground running as he prepares for training camp. His recent upload on Instagram features him practicing with his teammate, Julian Edelman.

In the clip, he throws a football to a Shirtless Edelman who effortlessly catches it. His throwing skill earns him a comment of approval from his colleague who says, "It very well could be like that. Great ball!"
[Newton] also accumulated 182 touchdowns within 29,041 yards. In 2011, with 14 touchdowns, he set the NFL record for most rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in a single season.
According to TMZ, this is not the quarterback's first training session with his Patriots teammates. He has, in the last few weeks, also trained with other wide receivers, Mohamed Sanu and N'Keal Harry.
The site, however, notes that the recent upload is more significant because Edelman is the team's starting wide receiver. The video also made an appearance on Edelman's social media page alongside the eyeballs and shush sign emoji as caption.
Boston CBS shares that the duo appears to have mutual respect and they have made their fans aware of this fact. When Newton joined the team in June after signing a one-year deal, Edelman took to social media to welcome him.
Newton also reportedly recently shared a post of him studying the playbook and taking to the comments to show how he was going to work well with the WR1. In the caption, he referenced a quote from him.
The outlet adds that the pair are working hard to prove a point this season and according to the NFL Network reporter, Mike Giardi, they seem confident enough they will do well.
As part of his offseason training, Edelman has also worked out with Patriots' other quarterback, Jarrett Stidham, as reported by MSN. According to WHDH, Stidham and Brian Hoyer might have to compete with the new quarterback for the starting spot in Foxborough.
Though he might be the new kid on the block in the Patriots team, Newton has had quite an impressive career. With nine seasons under his belt when he played for the Carolina Panthers, he started 124 of the 125 regular-season games and completed 2,371 of his 3,980 passes.
He also accumulated 182 touchdowns within 29,041 yards. In 2011, with 14 touchdowns, he set the NFL record for most rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in a single season. The athlete won the NFL MVP in 2015 when he led his former team to a 15-1 record earning them a spot in the Super Bowl 50.
