ICYMI: Patriots Officially Assign Cam Newton’s Jersey NumberGreg M. Cooper - USA TODAY Sports

Well for those of you who are anxious to run out and buy a Cam Newton Patriots jersey but we’re waiting on his number assignment, its finally happened.

On Wednesday, the Patriots formally announced Newton’s contract and with it came the knowledge he will sport the same number “1” that he wore during his first nine seasons with the Carolina Panthers.

As NESN’s Adam London pointed out today, everyone on social media immediately reacted with the same bad joke about how mascot Pat Patriot is going to need a new number, including yours truly.

CLNS Media’s Evan Lazar later shared some research on who was the last Patriots player to wear number 1 before Newton.

Here’s your first Tony Franklin reference of 2020.

According to Football Reference, just three players in the Patriots 60 year history have worn jersey number 1 before Newton, all were kickers.

As of this posting, it remains unknown if Pat Patriot asked for any compensation for the jersey switch.
