Cam Newton tried to pay man $1,500 to swap seats on flight, got turned down

Cam Newton

Cam Newton tried to pay someone $1,500 to swap seats with him on a plane flight and was turned down, according to a person on the flight.

A man named Eli Edwards shared video on Twitter Friday of Newton talking with someone at a seat on a plane flight. Edwards says that Newton offered the man $1,500 cash to swap seats on their flight. The Carolina Panthers quarterback was apparently trying to get extra leg room. Newton appeared to be sitting coach on the flight based on where he sat down after apparently being turned down.

Newton attended Men’s Fashion Week in Paris and appeared to be returning home from that event. Edwards was in Paris as well, though he was there proposing to his fiancee at the Women’s World Cup.

Between the proposal and his Newton video going viral, Edwards is having a huge week on social media.

As for why Newton wasn’t flying in business or first class, we’re wondering that too. Maybe he just jumped on a flight to get home early and figured he would just try to buy his way into a better seat, but the plan did not seem to work out.

The 2015 NFL MVP is working his way back from offseason shoulder surgery. He played in 14 games last season, throwing for 3,395 yards and 24 touchdowns.
