The Real Reason Cam Newton Isn't in the NFL Anymore

Colin Cowherd: “The NFL has been telling me for years what they want with quarterbacks so I try to listen… The NFL told you with one move what they want. It’s Carolina taking Teddy Bridgewater over Cam. Teddy is smaller, had a worse injury, doesn’t have a huge arm, and he’s not the athlete. Instead of trying to figure out this complicated reason WHY, just look at Carolina… Cam is distracted – they’re not into that. Cam is a celebrity – they’re not into that. Cam is coachable, but there’s drama I’ve been told for years – they’re not into that. It’s NOT the injury, Teddy Bridgewater has a worse career injury. Cam has a bigger arm, better body, won a lot of games, won an MVP… GM’s want ‘just football’ with their quarterbacks. They don’t want ‘celebrity’, they don’t want drama, they don’t want fashion, they frankly don’t want politics, but if you’re great they’ll deal with it… Foles got a job, Mariota got a job, and even Jameis got a job... Jameis isn't distracted and he’s not a celebrity, he just throws too many picks.” (Full Video Above)

Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why he thinks former NFL MVP quarterback Cam Newton is still a free agent, as Newton became the biggest casualty of a loaded quarterback market of musical chairs that had Newton with nowhere sit once the music stopped.

Check out the video above as Colin details why he thinks NFL GM’s would rather have a player like Teddy Bridgewater, Nick Foles, Marcus Mariota, and Jameis Winston, than a guy like Cam.
