How is Cam Newton fitting in with his new team?

Apparently pretty well according to one Patriots player.

"He's already the show," the player said Tuesday night to NFL Media's Mike Giardi.

Each one of the Patriots players who have spoken publicly since his signing have raved about his energy, which is no surprise given his past.

Prior to Wednesday, the Patriots have only been able to do strength and conditioning work on the field with no coaches present. But, that changed Wednesday as the team was on the field practicing "real" football, coaches included.

The first full-padded practice is scheduled for Monday and the media will get a first full look at how Newton looks.

Here's video from the Patriots of Wednesday's session.
