Cam Newton is in the national spotlight once again, but this time it is not for his strong play.
The former Auburn star and current QB for the Carolina Panthers had a curious exchange with a female reporter during Wednesday’s press conference. Here is the story on Newton’s comments following a question from reporter Jourdan Rodrigue.
