Humbleness will soon be no more for Cam Newton of the New England Patriots.
Love him or hate him, Newton is a ton of fun. The former No. 1 overall pick by the Carolina Panthers has joined the New England Patriots ahead of his 10th NFL season out of Auburn University. The 2010 Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback had to wait months to find a new team on account of concerns surrounding the Lisfranc injury he suffered back in September.
With the medicals cleared, Newton is already putting in the work. Even though former Patriot Rob Ninkovich thinks he’s a third-stringer on this team, Newton has worked out with new teammate Mohamed Sanu and Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Those videos were got us hyped! Now, he told us he’s “getting tired of being humble now.” Good luck with that, AFC East.
Cam Newton is chomping at the bit to get out there to prove everyone wrong.
Newton has always been a physical specimen. He works his tail off all year long, whether that’s in the gym, on the practice field or in the classroom. Though his over-the-top extra personality may eventually wear people out, there’s never been any doubt about how much Newton loves to play the game of football. He has so much passion out and we’re excited to see it on display again.
Though it may just be a lot of endorphins kicking during a workout on an Instagram video, the rest of the AFC East better watch out. The Evil Empire has itself an extra motivated quarterback ready to prove the entire NFL wrong. There is too much energy in that video for one to handle, so best of luck to Brian Hoyer or Jarrett Stidham trying to beat him out for the starting job in fall camp.
As for the Buffalo Bills, the Miami Dolphins and the New York Jets, next year is only one year away. Buffalo may still be the favorites to win the division, but Newton has done it three times more recently than Buffalo hosted a home playoff game with Jim Kelly as the Bills quarterback. Miami and New York have to be kicking themselves knowing Superman Cam is now in the division.
Newton looks like he’s about to run through the brick wall we call humbleness and bulldoze it.
