Doug Gottlieb Says Cam Newton Needs to Sacrifice His Ego if He Wants a Job

Doug Gottlieb: Cam Newton Needs to 'Sacrifice His Ego' if He Wants a Job
Doug Gottlieb: “Jameis has signed up to ‘learn’ for a year… It’s the real reason why Cam Newton is not in the league, and even the reason why Colin Kaepernick fell out of the league… They were quarterbacks who played a lot of ball and we’re asked to come in for a million, or less than a million dollars to just ‘learn’, and they wouldn’t do it… If Cam wants to play in the league he’s not only going to have to sacrifice his EGO potentially for playing time… Jameis knew that he had to have his brand align with Sean Payton’s, align with Drew Brees’, and align with Taysom Hill’s, and just sit there and learn… Jameis said ‘Hey, I’m OK with not playing', ‘Hey I’m OK with not making a bunch of money’, and ‘Hey I’m OK with maybe being the THIRD quarterback.’ That is really smart. The sacrifice of ego and the sacrifice of financial gain shows people how bad you want something.” (Full Audio Above)

Listen to Doug Gottlieb explain the real reason former NFL MVP Cam Newton is still unemployed, just days after former passing yards champion Jameis Winston found a home by settling for the New Orleans Saints’ backup quarterback position.

Key word, ‘BACKUP’ quarterback, for a fellow number one overall pick who is still only 26-year-old, and is coming off a season in which he threw for over 5,100 yards and 33 touchdowns, and had a better QBR than Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady.

Check out the audio above as Gottlieb details why Cam needs to sacrifice his ego like Jameis did, and show teams that he’s willing to sit on the bench at a much discounted price just to resurrect his career, alla Teddy Bridgewater and Ryan Tannehill.
