CHARLOTTE, NC – Cam Newton still believes he is one of the 32 best finishers in the NFL and that the public perception of him comes from the “f — ed-up” with the Carolina Panthers in the final. weather.

“I signed up Thursday. I played Sunday,” the 2015 NFL MVP said in a “Pivot Podcast” hosted by ESPN’s Ryan Clark and former NFL player Channing Crowder and Fred Taylor. “What time do you think you will be successful? The next week, I started. I still have at least 10 days to be on the team. And you are trying to learn the mistake.

“So before I get here I’m going to let the story be told that Cam is no more, Cam is taking full responsibility and that Cam put himself in trouble, which was then the problem. [how they think of me]. ”

Newton, 33, is free. He made his last eight games with the Panthers last season when he was signed in November when founder Sam Darnold was placed on the sidelines with a shoulder injury.

Four days later, in the support section, Newton scored in his first two games – a 2-yard run and a 2-yard run – to help the Panthers win in Arizona.

He started the next five games, going 0-5 with three ground runs and five innings. It also had four running touchdowns.

The Panthers did not sign him again after the season, but opened the door to return to compete with Darnold, third-place finisher Matt Corral and former XFL star PJ Walker.

Newton, who made his first appearance in the 2011 preparations with the Panthers, believes he can support any team that offers him a chance. He repeatedly said in the podcast “there are no 32 boys better than me.”

“If you think I can’t be in the human race right now, you’re stupid,” Newton said.

Newton said what the 33-year-old needs to be a team with support and time to learn the process. .

“If you are asking to run the show without your sponsors achieving what they are doing, then you will be on your own,” Newton said.

Newton recalled that he did not have this with the Panthers in 2021 and did not get a chance to find fault with New England in 2020 after signing at the end of June that year.

“The situation in New England was very difficult,” Newton said. “I was learning about the error for seven or eight weeks in a season,” he said.

Newton won their first start for the Patriots, but finished 7-8 and went on to win just eight, but 10 times.

“It was full in the brain,” Newton said of his 2020 season. “It was a time when I went in line and still think. … Do I know? Yes. Until I needed to know to show the world that I was still Cam Newton?

But I put myself in that situation.

Newton compared himself to Superman and his touchdown celebrations as he entered the league, but is not doing so now.

“I have a lot of kids [five] now if I am not Superman to them I will be cursed if I allow the world to call me Superman, ” he said.

Newton also stated that he did not want to offend or humiliate women when he appeared in the “Million Dollaz Worth of Game” podcast in April.

In the podcast, Newton talked about women who “can’t cook” and “don’t know when to keep quiet.”

“Now a woman, for me, is working on yours but she knows how to take care of her husband’s needs. Right? ” Newton said in April. this one, I ‘am the one.’

“No baby! But you can’t cook, you don’t know when to be quiet, you don’t know how to let someone lead.”

Newton recalled growing up in a family with “two strong women,” his mother and grandmother, as well as strong men.

“What I would add was that like a strong man, you have to obey your partner,” Newton said. “I say as strong men we should appreciate this powerful force in our lives.”

Asked if he was ready to leave the ball, Newton said, “I was ready, honestly, when the Panthers cut me for the first time.”

This happened in 2020 when Matt Rhule was hired to replace coach Ron Rivera.

But about the same breath Newton continued the story that he is still one of the 32 best finishers in the NFL and is still interested in proving himself. He also said that any group that finds him has to deal with everything that comes with his personality greater than life.

“Because he knows that if you bring Cam Newton into your organization it will be a mantra for itself … ‘Put Cam! Put Cam!’ ‘Newton said.

“Now, should I apologize for my concern being as big as it is? Not really.”
