Julian Edelman Welcomes Cam Newton To Patriots, Cracks Joke In New Post

Julian Edelman is ready to get to work with Cam Newton.

The Patriots receiver took to social media Tuesday to welcome the 31-year-old quarterback to New England. Newton reportedly has agreed to sign a one-year, incentive-laden deal with the Patriots, though the deal wasn’t official as of noon Tuesday.

Edelman’s post also included a rather lame Massachusetts joke.

Whether Edelman, who has spent his entire career catching passes from Tom Brady, is able to adapt to life with a new star signal-caller remains to be seen.
