Tom Brady apparently is happy for the New England Patriots’ newest quarterback.
As you surely have heard, the Patriots reportedly intend to sign free agent QB Cam Newton to a one-year, incentive-laden contract. The 31-year-old will join veteran Brian Hoyer and sophomore Jarrett Stidham on New England’s quarterback depth chart. All three presumably will battle in training camp for the right to replace Brady, who signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in free agency this offseason after 20 seasons with the Patriots.
Brady reacted to the Newton news in the comments section of an Instagram post from the NFL.

And here’s Brady’s reaction:
Brady and Newton both are sponsored by Under Armour, meaning they are teammates in a sense. What Brady truly thinks about the signing is anyone’s guess, and probably always will be.
