Cam Newton has been throwing this off-season. Cam Newton has a team called the Carolina Panthers. Cam Newton has a team that needs wide-receivers. Cam Newton was throwing to non-Panther wide receivers. Yes, it is the off-season.
Cam Newton was at the Under Armour headquarters and tossed the good old pigskin around with Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb and Baltimore Ravens wideout Torrey Smith. Both player are entering the final years of the respective contracts but don’t read too much into it. All three were working out with some high-school footballers as well and both Cobb and Smith are also contracted by Under Armour.
For those fans of the Panthers who think that Newton should be working out with his rookie’s, well, he was. First round pick Kelvin Benjamin was also on hand to catch some of the passes Newton was tossing around. So what’s the hubbub? Nothing more than an off-season where wild speculation hangs on Twitter comments and Facebook pictures.
Panther fans can speculate all they want about either Smith or Cobb joining the team during the 2015 off-seaosn and why not? Both wide receivers will be free agents and despite the Panthers drafting wide receiver help the team should have money to spend during the early weeks of March, 2015. So while it’s crazy to talk about now, July of 2014 only four weeks away from training camp, we as fans indulge in the art of NFL mock drafting, even immediately after any given years draft.
So despite the fact there is no news here to report it is good to see that Newton is getting some extra non-sanctioned work in with a rookie he needs to be up to speed with by seasons start.
