Cam Newton feels like ‘a fish out of water’ after release from Panthers
Cam Newton is still looking for a new home after his release from the Carolina Panthers, and he’s working on some other things, too.
Newton appeared on Instagram Live with Chris Paul on Monday to discuss how the quarterback is coping since his release. Newton admitted that he feels like “a fish out of water” since being released by the only NFL franchise he’s ever played for, but is looking to be guided to the right destination.

It’s still pretty clear that Newton didn’t want to leave Carolina. He ultimately wasn’t given a choice, and is having a hard time finding a new starting job elsewhere. It’s been reported that he’s willing to wait a while to find a new team, but for now, it sounds like his focus is on improving himself mentally.
