Cam would certainly like to have this pass back.
The 33-year-old veteran quarterback announced he would throw at Auburn’s Pro Day on Tuesday — more than a year after his last NFL game.
On Monday, he posted a video and asked “how these randoms [quarterbacks] keep getting jobs?” before he state that there “ain’t 32 m***s better than me.”
On Tuesday, he threw a pass that showed why 32 quarterbacks were better than him.
Things surely got better after that, but that pass was not a good look.
Newton played eight games for the Panthers that season after one season with the New England Patriots in 2020. Before that, he started 148 games for the Panthers from 2011-2019 after Carolina drafted Newton with the No. 1 pick in 2011.
If he never plays another down, Newton will still be the only player in NFL history with at least 30,000 passing yards and 5,000 rushing yards.
Newton won NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2011 and NFL MVP in 2015.
It remains to be seen if teams will reach out to him to sign a deal since he clearly thinks that he is better suited being a starter in the league and not a backup. It was likely the reason no teams came calling last year.
While Newton plots his comeback, it’s unclear if his attempt will succeed with the NFL Draft coming.
