Cam Newton says his jersey shows leadership

When the news came down that Cam Newton jersey needed offseason shoulder surgery, after suffering a partial tear in his rotator cuff in Week 14, the immediate question became: Why did the ‘ quarterback play the final games of a lost season?


As the Panthers began offseason workouts this week with Newton on the sideline rehabbing from surgery, the quarterback told Bill Voth of the team’s official website that he felt it was his duty as a team captain to play if he could.

“Was it smart? People may say it wasn’t, but at the end of the day, I think the bigger picture was I’m one of the leaders on this cheap custom football jerseys team,” Newton said. “I just want to set a good standard that, listen, the team comes first and I’m just going to put myself in position to try to lead this team as much as possible.”

He added: “But at the end of the day, I felt as if there was another thing that was achieved. I wear the ‘C’ patch on my jersey with great pride, and I feel as if it comes around again, would I reconsider it? Yeah, but also knowing those guys that I’m going to give every single thing that I have to give for this game, for the fans, for my teammates, especially.”

The club hosted the former Stanford star on a pre-draft visit last week, according to the Charlotte Observer. The Panthers hold the No. 8 overall pick in the draft, and they’re the first team selecting with running back as a primary need.

McCaffrey also has upcoming visits scheduled with the Washington Redskins and , who select at Nos. 17 and 20 in the first round, respectively, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

McCaffrey’s name is heating up in draft circles.

NFL executives have told Good Morning Football’s Peter Schrager that they expect him to be selected in the top 10 picks, and analyst Daniel Jeremiah has paired him with the Panthers at the No. 8 pick in his most recent mock draft.

Not surprisingly, the Panthers have also arranged to host LSU RB Leonard Fournette for a pre-draft visit, and Tennessee RB is on Carolina’s visit list, as well.

The NFL draft will be held April 27-29 in Philadelphia.

Fournette, the bigger and more powerful of the two, spent much of his pro-day efforts Wednesday trying to convince NFL teams that he can be an effective receiver, as well.

One of the elite safety prospects in the 2017 NFL Draft, Adams could be available for the Panthers with the No. 8 overall pick. Among five mock drafts by cheapjerseys analysts, none project the Panthers to select a defensive back at No. 8, and only one, Daniel Jeremiah, projects Adams to fall that far. Analyst believes Adams is the No. 1 overall prospect this year.

The NFL draft will be held April 27-29 in Philadelphia.

Adams isn’t the only top prospect from LSU at the Panthers facility Monday. The club is also hosting RB Leonard Fournette, per Albert Breer of the MMQB. Fournette is expected to be the first running back selected. As with Adams cheap youth football jerseys, however, confidence that he’ll be available at No. 8 is not high among  analysts.

Adams (6-foot, 214 pounds) is considered one of the draft’s top two safety prospects, along with Ohio State’s . Another safety the club has shown some pre-draft interest in: UConn’s Obi Melifonwu, who reportedly ate lunch with the Panthers following his pro day workout last month.
