Cam Newton's recovery going well


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is recovering well following surgery on his left ankle two weeks ago, his agent told the Charlotte Observer. The surgery was designed to tighten Newton's ankle ligaments.

"He's doing fine," agent Bus Cook said. "I mean, Cam's a big, strong, tough kid. So he'll be fine."

Newton will miss OTAs but should be back for training camp, the paper said.

Panthers to pick up Cam Newton's 2015 option


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman said the team will exercise its fifth-year option on quarterback Cam Newton, keeping him in Carolina at least two more seasons, reports the Charlotte Observer. The 2015 option would pay Newton the average of the top 10 salaries at his position.

Carolina has until May 3 to pick up the option. Newton is recovering from ankle surgery but is expected to be ready for training camp.


Cam Newton's ankle problem dates back to Auburn


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2014) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, who is sidelined four months following last week's ankle surgery, first injured the ankle in 2010 at Auburn, coach Ron Rivera told the Charlotte Observer. In most offseasons Newton's ankle pain would decrease, but this time it didn't, prompting the surgery, Rivera said.


Cam Newton surgery 'went well'


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/20/2014) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton underwent surgery Wednesday to repair ligament damage in his left ankle, reports ESPN.

The expected recovery is four months, which puts Newton in jeopardy of missing the start of training camp. But, according to the report, he could start throwing on a limited basis before then.

"Dr. (Robert) Anderson did not find anything unexpected in the procedure and the surgery went well," Carolina head athletic trainer Ryan Vermillion said in a statement.

Newton will miss much of the offseason workouts and valuable time throwing to a new corps of wide receivers after the team released Steve Smith and watched two others (Brandon LaFell and Ted Ginn) leave via free agency.


Cam Newton's ankle problems started Nov. 10


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2014) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, who's having ankle surgery Wednesday, first injured the ankle Nov. 10 against the 49ers, reports the Charlotte Observer. “The ankle was sore after the San Francisco game and we wanted to see if rest would calm it down, but it is still bothering him and the decision was made to address it,” Panthers head trainer Ryan Vermillion said in a statement.

Newton still feels pain in the ankle, raising questions about why he played in the Pro Bowl. He was sacked four times in that game and rushed for a 1-yard touchdown.

Newton did not mention any ankle problems until saying he "nicked" it Week 16 against the Saints. The team says Wednesday's procedure will tighten ligaments that got stretched out.


Cam Newton having ankle surgery, to miss four months


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2014) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will undergo ankle surgery Wednesday and be out four months, reports CBS Sports Insider Jason La Canfora. The procedure will tighten ligaments that got stretched out in his left ankle, according to the Charlotte Observer.

Newton said he "nicked" his ankle Week 16. If the recovery timetable proves accurate, Newton would be back for the start of training camp.

The news about Newton's surgery comes on the heels of Carolina losing its top four receivers, though the team did not try hard to retain any of them.


Cam Newton's receivers: Zero catches in NFL


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2014) The Panthers have let their top four receivers depart, leaving quarterback Cam Newton with an extremely inexperienced group of wideouts. Tavarres King and Marvin McNutt sit atop the depth chart. Neither has caught an NFL pass.

Top free agent receivers, including hometown favorite Hakeem Nicks, signed elsewhere, though James Jones remains available. Look for Carolina to select multiple receivers in the draft.

At least Newton has tight end Greg Olsen returning. He led the team with 73 catches for 816 yards and six touchdowns last year.


Hakeem Nicks' wish list: Colts, Panthers, Chargers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2014) Free agent receiver Hakeem Nicks told ESPN he can see himself catching passes from the Colts' Andrew Luck, the Panthers' Cam Newton or the Chargers' Philip Rivers. Nicks failed to catch a touchdown pass with the Giants last season.

"Players have already started to reach out to me from other teams saying they would love for me to come join them," Nicks said. "I just want to make it clear that I want a long-term deal and I want to be happy. I'm excited about talking to teams and making it work."

Nicks earlier said he was open to a one-year deal.


Cam Newton not planning to hold out


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/18/2014) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has no plans to hold out with the hope of earning a contract extension, reports Pro Football Talk.

Newton said on the Dan Patrick Show that he's "absolutely not" planning to make a stand for more money despite entering the final season of his rookie deal. He is scheduled to make $3.4 million in 2014 and will be a free agent after this year.

"I'm not worried about contract discussions right now," Newton said. "My main focus is just becoming the better player I can become."


Cam Newton needs help at receiver


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/10/2014) The Panthers will likely look to upgrade at receiver this offseason in an effort to help quarterback Cam Newton, reports NFL.com.

The report says Steve Smith has lost a step, and Brandon LaFell and Ted Ginn are free agents this offseason. Adding some help at wide receiver "will be a top priority," per the report.


Cam Newton will respond to Colin Kaepernick


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2014) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said he will respond to Colin Kaepernick after Kaepernick mocked his touchdown celebration in the playoffs.

Newton jokingly told the NFL Network there "will" be a response to Kaepernick's antics. "He hurt my feelings, and I think so highly of Mr. Kaepernick," he continued. Newton did not divulge how he would respond to Kaepernick. Later in the interview, he said he has great respect for Kaepernick, and that the two hung out at the Pro Bowl.


Cam Newton still angry about playoff loss


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/26/2014) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is still angry about the team's playoff loss, according to the charlotteobserver.com.

Following the loss, Newton said he couldn't even watch last week's games. "It was hard. I was salty, and still am to a degree," Newton said. He added that it's been hard to watch video of the game. At the same time, Newton said the game will be his inspiration heading into the offseason.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Panthers GM: Cam Newton is a franchise quarterback


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2014) Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman was asked about quarterback Cam Newton at Tuesday's season-ending press conference. "Do I feel Cam is a franchise quarterback? He proved that this year," Gettleman said.

Gettleman, however, declined to say when the team would start negotiating an extension with Newton, who has one year left on his rookie deal. Newton accounted for 30 touchdowns and 14 turnovers in the regular season, but was intercepted twice in the playoff loss to the 49ers.


Cam Newton says he learned from playoff loss


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2014) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, who was picked off twice in the home playoff loss to the 49ers, called the game a learning expereicne.

"Playoff football is a different speed than the regular season," he told the team's website. "I learned that firsthand [Sunday]. You have to seize the moment when the moment allows."

Newton, who accounted for 30 touchdowns and 14 turnovers in the regular season, is entering the final year of his rookie deal.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Newton was solid early, connecting with Steve Smith on a perfectly thrown 31 yard touchdown pass early in the second quarter. That was the only major highlight of the day, however. Newton was limited otherwise, finishing 16 of 25 with 267 yards. He threw one touchdown to two interceptions. He was pressured by the 49ers defense, and was sacked five times. Newton was more effective in the run game, picking up 54 yards on 10 attempts.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cam Newton has good opportunity in Week 17


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/26/2013) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton heads into his Week 17 matchup at Atlanta struggling with his production, but he should end the regular season on a high note against the Falcons.

Newton has hit a downturn the past three games, and he comes into this matchup without Steve Smith (knee). Newton has 17 Fantasy points or less in the past three weeks, and he hasn’t thrown multiple touchdowns in any game over that span.

But this week he should rebound in a big way. The Falcons have allowed every quarterback but Matt Flynn in Week 14 to score multiple touchdowns, including Newton in Week 9 when he scored 19 Fantasy points.

In his past four meetings with Atlanta, Newton has 10 total touchdowns, and he should take over this game with the No. 2 seed in the NFC on the line with a win. We expect him to come through, so don’t give up on him now. He remains a No. 1 Fantasy quarterback in all leagues.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Prior to that score, he was held in check most of the game. Newton also had four rushing attempts, but only picked up 6 yards. He'll take on the Falcons Week 17. 


Cam Newton facing tough matchup Week 16


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is looking at a rough matchup Week 16 against the Saints.

New Orleans has been effective against opposing quarterbacks this year, limiting them to 14.57 Fantasy points per game. Through 14 games, the team has allowed 17 passing touchdowns. The first time the two teams met this season, Newton was limited to 160 yards and a touchdown. That game was in New Orleans, where the Saints typically play much better.

Newton also happens to play better at home. While he's thrown for the same amount of yardage, Newton has a 65.95 completion percentage during home games. He's thrown for 12 touchdowns in seven games at home thus far. Newton has been a useful Fantasy play thoughout the season, but could be limited again Week 16 against the Saints.
