Cam Newton has been out of the NFL for some time, but that hasn’t diminished his confidence in the least. The free agent posted a video on Monday where he announced that he will be throwing at Auburn’s Pro Day, but he had to take some shots during his highlight reel.
“Tell me how these randoms keep getting jobs,” he said. “I’mma show you. I can’t wait to show you. I love it.”
Clearly, Newton thinks some NFL quarterbacks don’t deserve their jobs and he certainly is of the mindset that one of those 32 starting jobs should be his.
“Ain’t 32 m------------ better than me, you dig?” he said with a laugh.
Newton, who will turn 34 in May, went unsigned this past season and hasn’t appeared in a game since Jan. 9 2022 during his second stint with the Panthers. There was a time when Newton was one of the best athletes in the sport, but his MVP days are far behind him at this point.
While with Carolina in 2021, he started in five of his eight appearances and threw for 684 yards and four touchdowns. He also threw five interceptions and had a 55% completion percentage. The three-time Pro Bowler is out to prove that he can still play in the NFL, and he’ll look to show the world at his alma mater.
