Cam Newton had a tough 2020 season with the New England Patriots to the point they are not expected to bring him back for a second one.
That led to talk of people thinking Newton might be done, not just as a starter or bench player, but walking away from the game completely.
Pump your brakes, there. The former Auburn Tigers star had a blunt response to that notion.
“Hell no! I can’t go out like that. I hear all of that talk. My pride won’t allow me to do it,” Newton said. “There aren’t 32 guys better than me.”
Newton passed for 2,657 yards, eight touchdowns, and 10 interceptions during his first year with the Patriots.
The free agent quarterback will officially hit the open market when the new league year begins on March 17.
