Cam Newton is a part of the New England Patriots, and we have the photo to prove it.

Newton agreed to a one-year contract with the Patriots in late June for the veteran minimum, plus incentives (full details here). The Patriots were the only team to offer him a contract, likely because he wanted to compete for a starting job, and they were the only team that would give him a shot to start.
In New England, Newton will compete with Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer for playing time. The 31-year-old former league MVP has been hampered by injuries the last two seasons and is recovering from foot surgery.
