Cam Newton still can\'t believe he signed with the New England Patriots this offseason.
\"I\'m still ... I don\'t want to say in disbelief at this particular point in time, but it\'s a surreal moment,\" Newton said Friday in his first official media availability with the Patriots.
\"Nobody really knows how excited I am, just to be a part of this organization, in many ways [more] than one. Following up such a powerful dynasty, that is enriched in so much prestige, a lineage of success. A lot of people would hide from the notion to do certain things. But for me, I think this opportunity is something that I wake up pinching myself each and every day. It\'s so surreal.\"
Newton will wear No. 1 with the Patriots as he did with the Carolina Panthers.
\"It\'s crazy, I just found myself putting on shirts and said, \'Oh my God!\' I don\'t know when that moment [will come], but some day it will click that this is the norm,\" Newton said.
