After being released last week by the New England Patriots, Cam Newton is still without a team. The former league MVP will start the season as a free agent.
Don’t think this is the end for Newton though. In a new post on Instagram, the onetime No. 1 overall draft pick said he has “a lot of things that I need to get off my chest” in a video due out this Friday.
Newton then made it abundantly clear that he has no intention of hanging up his cleats.
“This is not a retirement speech. I have a lot of football still in me,” Newton said.
While Newton’s insistence that he wants to keep playing is the most noteworthy thing about this video, we’re wondering what exactly he else he wants to share later this week.
Perhaps Cam will address his time with the Patriots, or talk about his vaccination status and whether he’s concerned that it will keep him unsigned. Newton could also use the opportunity to talk about his physical health and where he feels he is at after multiple seasons of nagging injuries.
Guess we’ll have to wait a couple of more days to see what Cam has to say.
