“You fittin’ to get a monster!”
Former Patriots Super Bowl MVP Deion Branch says Cam Newton is going to go OFF in 2020 … telling TMZ Sports the QB is poised for a huge season as Tom Brady‘s replacement.
“I think this guy’s going to erupt, man,” the ex-Pats wideout says. “I think this is going to be a crazy season for him.”
“Right now, Cam feels like everybody is doubting him,” Branch says. “That’s a place you never want to see a true competitor, because you fittin’ to get a monster!”
Of course, Cam hasn’t been quite the same QB since his MVP season in 2015 … mostly because injuries have hampered him throughout the last four seasons.
But, Branch says if Newton’s healthy — which he reportedly is — the Patriots might find a seamless transition from TB12.
“This isn’t fake, man,” Branch says. “This guy is out here grinding. And, he’s trying to show teams, ‘Hey, I know what I can do. Just give me the opportunity.'”
“And, I think that’s what Bill [Belichick] sat back and said, ‘OK, I can give you the opportunity. Now go do your thing.'”
