Cam Newton has no shortage of nicknames for his New England Patriots teammates.

We already knew his nicknames for a few Patriots wide receivers. He calls N'Keal Harry "Doughboy" and Julian Edelman "Highway 11".

Newton revealed several other nicknames during Monday morning's appearance on WEEI's "The Greg Hill Show".

Curran: Cam was great, but Pats' defense was better in Week 1

Here's a list of the nicknames he listed:

A couple of these are fairly easy to figure out.

"Free Mason" is probably right guard Shaq Mason. "Burky" likely is running back Rex Burkhead. "Stiddy" obviously is quarterback Jarrett Stidham, and "The Hoyster" must be quarterback Brian Hoyer. Twin No. 1 and No. 2 have to be Devin and Jason McCourty, in some order.

Overall, Newton has come up with a few clever nicknames for his teammates. "Highway 11" is one of the best, for sure, and Edelman had plenty of good things to say about his first game with Newton on Sunday.

“It was awesome," Edelman said after the Patriots' 21-11 win over the Miami Dolphins. "We went out there and battled and got a (win). (Newton) made some big plays and it was cool to witness that on his side. We've been on the other side, and I think he's beat us both times we went out there and played.

"He's a stud and he brings an energy, he's fun to play with. I'm looking forward to compounding and building off this and fixing the things that we didn't necessarily do well and adding to the things that we did do well and keeping it going. It was fun to finally get out there and play with him, along with all the other new teammates."
