Cam Newton’s training camp energy is pure joy.
It’s clear that Cam Newton does not have a case of the Monday’s and that’s pretty darn cool. The new New England Patriots quarterback showed up to the first day of full-padded practice with so much joy and excitement and that really makes us all a little bit more excited for our own workday.
Bill Belichick on Cam Newton’s energy
Coach Bill Belichick has even noticed Newton’s energy.
“All the quarterbacks have been good,” Belichick told the Keyshawn, JWill and Zubin program, as transcribed by WEEI. “Brian Hoyer’s got the most experience of any of our quarterbacks in our system. Jarrett Stidham is really coming on here in Year 2. He got a great year last year in terms of learning and personal and technique development at the position. And Cam has been a late addition, but he’s brought a lot of energy and, obviously, playing experience to our room. For him, it’s catching up on the specifics of the Patriots system, terminology and so forth, which he’s worked extremely hard at. Brian Lewerke is a college free agent quarterback that is also in the room and is a developmental-type player. It’s a good group.”
Newton signed with the team after the longtime quarterback, Tom Brady, left the team for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the offseason.
According to reporters who were onsite for the session, it lasted about an hour and a half and the focus was the running game.
