It was a big day for New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton.
The 31-year-old signal-caller, who arrived in New England on a modest one-year deal this offseason, was named the team’s starting quarterback for the 2020 season.
And that’s not all — the first-year Patriot was named a team captain, as well.
Newton took to Instagram to share his reaction, and express his excitement following Thursday’s news.
“Dear New England, I will not and do not take this opportunity for granted!! I’m so grateful for this organization, my teammates and this city. Thank you!! No need to look back now… LFG!!”
