The New England Patriots have agreed to sign Cam Newton to a one-year, “incentive-laden” plan, according to multiple reports.
So, naturally, wide receiver Mohamed Sanu had something to say about the signing.
Shortly after Sunday’s deal with reported, the Patriots wideout told ESPN’s Josina Anderson he was thrilled by the move.
“I knew something was up when you called. This is crazy. I think it’s great. I mean it’s Cam Newton,” Sanu said, via Andreson. “He can help the team in so many ways. He’s a big powerful leader. All he has to do is go be Cam. He’s an MVP.”

Newton proved his worth in 2015 after going 15-1 with the Panthers in the regular season, though they ultimately fell to the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50. He was named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player in 2015 on top of being named NFL’s Offensive Player of the Year.
That’s some pretty good stuff if you ask us.
