Cam Newton Signs With New England Patriots, Excites Fans For Unexpected Reason

The former Carolina Panthers quarterback could fill Tom Brady's shoes, but Twitter says Newton already has an edge in one category.

Many Patriots fans were thrilled that the team signed quarterback Cam Newton on Sunday ― but not just for football-related reasons.

New England’s former quarterback, Tom Brady, has six more Super Bowl rings than Newton, but Newton has way more style.

Newton, a former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL MVP, is a hardcore fashionista who attends designer shows in Paris, can rock a babushka at a postgame press conference and knows his pret-a-porter from his haute couture.

So when word emerged that Newton had reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with Brady’s old team, the Patriot faithful were hoping the new signal caller could deliver for the fall line.
