Madden 21 Offers First Look At Cam Newton In A Patriots Jersey

Cam Newton is headed to the Patriots to take over for Tom Brady--here's what he looks like in the new Madden game.


In one of the year's bigger NFL offseason moves, the New England Patriots have signed former Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton to fill the void after Tom Brady left for the Buccaneers.

We've yet to see Newton in a real Patriots jersey, so EA Sports has stepped in to show the athlete in his new jersey in Madden NFL 21. It's shocking to see someone other than Tom Brady leading the Patriots, but change is the only constant, and a new era of football in New England is about to begin.

As it happens, Newton isn't technically confirmed to be the new Patriots QB for this year. He needs to beat out Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer, the Patriots QBs who are currently leading the team during practices. Newton is expected to be the starting QB on opening day--after all, the Patriots are paying him $7.5 million USD for just one year.

As for Madden NFL 21, the professional football game is scheduled for release in late August on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It will be released on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X when those systems release this holiday.

A closed beta test for Madden NFL 21 is coming up soon, and here's how you can sign up.
