Regardless of how successful Cam Newton is or how many starts he makes, the Patriots have already made history with the signing. With Brady and Newton both being league MVPs, the Patriots became the first team to lose an NFL MVP and add an NFL MVP in the same offseason, CBS Boston reports.

Newton of course won the MVP Award in 2015, when he accounted for 4,473 yards (3,837 passing, 636 rushing) and 45 touchdowns (35 passing, 10 rushing) while leading the Panthers to a 15-1 record. Brady has won the award three times — in 2007, 2010, and 2017.

Both quarterbacks will be playing with something to prove in 2020. For Brady, it will be a mission to prove that Bill Belichick and the Patriots were wrong to cut ties with him after 20 years. For Newton, it will be a mission to prove that the entire NFL was wrong to overlook him after the Panthers released him.
