Motivated Cam Newton posts new video following release from Carolina: 'They gave up on me'
Did Carolina give up on Cam Newton?
The former NFL MVP certainly thinks so based on the latest video the longtime Panthers quarterback shared on social media.
To be fair to the Panthers, Newton has been available to sign now for some time following his release by the club and QB-needy teams like the Los Angeles Chargers, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots have not aggressively attempted to sign the free agent passer. The Panthers also gave Newton the option to seek a trade but that never materialized, either.
Newton may be waiting out his free agency in order to land on the best team possible but it is interesting that no reports of an offer have yet to be extended to the former NFL MVP.
Of course, his situation would likely be much different if he wasn’t coming off an injury. However, that being said, the reality is Newton only appeared in two games last season and he’s now failed to play in all 16 regular-season games in four of his previous six NFL seasons.
There’s no question Newton still has a place in the NFL but he may have to work hard to earn a starting spot this offseason. Is he willing to put in that work?
Based on the video Newton recently posted, all he knows is work. Now he has to go out and prove that.
“All I know is work….they gave up on me.”
