Cam Newton Gets Into It With Kid At Football Camp
Cam Newton took part in a youth football camp over the weekend as he faces an uncer- tain NFL future, and the for- mer MVP probably did not expect to have to deal with a heckler. Unfortunately, he did.
A kid who looked like he was about high school age began chirping at Newton on the sideline and telling him he’s a free agent. Newton clapped back by reminding the young man he is rich, to which the kid replied, “You about to be poor.” Newton also asked, “Where’s your dad?”
Neither Newton nor the young heckler wanted to back down.
Newton certainly is rich, and he will likely be just fine even if he doesn’t find a job in 2021. He has already made more than $122M on the field alone.
This week, it’s time for the camera to focus on Jennie as our Beauty Unlimited feature for this week. This young lady is espe- cially unique in that she truly enjoys being photographed. Jennie enjoys being around anyone who can enhance her desire to be suc- cessful. Congratulations to Jennie as this week’s Beauty Unlimited feature.
Unfollows The Carolina
Panthers On Social Media
 The Carolina Panthers are positioning themselves to trade for Deshaun Watson this offseason and Teddy Bridgewater doesn’t seem happy about it.
This week the team re- leased several players to clear nearly $20 million in a salary cap space.
The Carolina Panthers cleared $19.9 million in salary-cap space this week with the release of four play- ers, including three on Fri- day.
The release of Pro Bowl defensive tackle Kawann Short on Wednesday and of defensive end Stephen Weatherly, safety Tre Boston and punter Michael Palardy on Friday improved the team’s cap space to $28.473 million heading into the start of free agency next month. Boston’s release won’t be official until the league year starts March 17, with a post-June 1 designa- tion, according to a source.
According to ESPN’s David Newton, the move is a clear indicator that the
team is set to make a strong run to trade for Watson if the Texans make him avail- able.
The Panthers, per a source, plan to make a strong run at Houston quarterback Deshaun Watson if the Texans grant the former Clemson star his wish to be traded.
Watson is set to count $15.94 million against the 2021 cap, then jump to $40.4 million in 2022.
Bridgewater, who is currently the starting QB in Carolina, unfollowed the Panthers on social media after the moves.
