Cam Newton can’t practice with his Patriots teammates at Gillette Stadium yet, but the New England quarterback and his new targets are still getting their work in.
And they’re doing so in style.

Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman shared a few photos Friday on Instagram of his workout with Newton and several other Patriots. Check out that last photo in particular.
Is that the Patriots’ wide receiver corps or the cast of “Stranger Things”?
In case you’re wondering, that’s Jakobi Meyers, Edelman, Newton, Damiere Byrd, N’Keal Harry and Gunner Olszewski, who’s rocking an incredible Def Leppard shirt along with an American flag gaiter.

Edelman also appears to be in very good shape, as Olszewski pointed out in the comment section:
“Bro you cut up like a Christmas ham .. how old are you ?”
Even Green Bay Packers star wide receiver Davante Adams chimed in, commenting “Big flexaa” on Edelman’s post.
Patriots players can’t report to Gillette Stadium until they pass three COVID-19 tests in a span of four days from Tuesday to Friday. Even after they pass those tests, full-contact practices don’t begin until Aug. 17.
That means more opportunities for Newton, Edelman and the Patriots’ wideouts to showcase their style during informal workouts.
