Cam Newton reacted to the Patriots’ headline-grabbing opening day of free agency in a similar manner to New England fans.
Newton made a Tuesday morning post on his social media in which he was walking out of Gillette Stadium as “Welcome Back” by Mase played.
The 31-year-old captioned the post with a reference to the Patriots’ roster reset.
“When you realize things are already different,” wrote Newton. “The second go around!”
Newton returns to New England on a reported one-year deal worth up to $13.6 million, with $3.5 million guaranteed.
Joining Newton next season will be a host of new players who the Patriots reportedly agreed to deals with on Monday and Tuesday, including tight ends Jonnu Smith and Hunter Henry. Bill Belichick also added a pair of wide receivers in Kendrick Bourne and Nelson Agholor.
