Ex-teammate thinks Cam Newton ‘took names’ while waiting in free agency

Cam Newton tie

Cam Newton may be a very motivated man playing for the New England Patriots this year, at least according to one of the quarterback’s former teammates.

NFL Network’s Michael Giardi spoke to an anonymous ex-teammate of Newton’s in Carolina. That player is expecting the Patriots to get a very motivated quarterback — one who has made a note of every team and coach that passed on him during his lengthy offseason wait to be signed.

Newton has to win the job first, which he seems to understand. There’s a great degree of confidence that he’ll be able to do that. Newton was a league MVP not long ago, and getting back to that level will be a huge motivator for him. Plus, with a one-year deal, he can get the contract he probably thinks he deserves if he performs well in New England.

This teammate isn’t the only one who knows Newton well who thinks this is going to end up being a great fit for the quarterback.
