- Advertisment -

CAM NEWTON has agreed to a deal with the New England Patriots to take over from Tom Brady as their quarter-back on a one-year deal.

The league’s former MVP, 31, has signed an incentive-heavy contract to head to New England in a bid to replace their star quarterback.

Brady, 42, spent 20 seasons with the Patriots, winning the Super Bowl six times, before joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in March.

Newton – a free agent before signing for the Pats – will now battle 2019 fourth-round pick Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer for the starting QB spot.

But the 2015 MVP – nicknamed “Superman” appeared to be thrilled with his marquee move, taking to Instagram to share his excitement.

He wrote: “I’m as excited as I don’t what right now!!.

“All praise to God!! Dropping content tomorrow!! I hope you’re ready!! #Let’sgoPats.”

Newton had spent all nine years of his career so far at the Carolina Panthers, having initially joined as a rookie – going first overall in the 2011 draft.

The quarterback had one year left on his staggering five-year, £84million deal.

But he was released to save £16m under the salary cap – with Teddy Bridgewater penning a three-year deal worth £50m.

But Newton’s move could be a risky one for the Patriots, despite his obvious talents on the gridiron.

Down the years, his performances have often been overshadowed by overzealous celebrations and a difficult relationship with the media.
