Rivera on Newton's fundamentals: 'Not as sound as he needs to be'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) For Panthers quarterback Cam Newton to take the next step in his development, he must continue to improve his fundamentals, coach Ron Rivera told reporters.

"I'd like to see him continue to work on his position-specific skills ... his technique, his throwing motion," Rivera said at the NFL owners meeting, per ESPN.com. "He relies so much on his great athleticism that sometimes he's not as sound as he needs to be on his fundamentals.

"That's the next step in being sound in everything he does."

Entering his fifth season, Newton has a career completion percentage of 59.5.


Panthers not concerned about lack of new contract affecting QB Cam Newton


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is set to play out the last year of his current contract in 2015. Although the team would like to sign him to an extension, head coach Ron Rivera doesn't think it will be a distraction, reports the Charlotte Observer.

When asked if Newton could have the franchise tag placed on him in 2016, Rivera said he hopes it doesn't come to that.

"Personally, yes I would," Rivera said when asked if he wants the negotiations to wrap up before the season.

"But they have a timetable, both sides do I imagine. Both sides have a plan and hopefully we can all get everything worked out together."

Rivera continued making it clear that he's not worried about Newton's performance on the field if an extension isn't worked out right away.

"I think our quarterback is a smart, savvy young man, understands the dynamics of the game," he said. "I think he's the kind of guy who's able to focus on certain aspects of the game and put things aside. Obviously, that's a work in progress right now."


Police: Panthers' Cam Newton not person of interest in shooting


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Police stated Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is not a person of interest in a shooting at a Charlotte, N.C. nightclub, according to the Associated Press. 

Newton was photographed at Label nightclub on stage with rapper Young Jeezy last weekend before gunshots were fired into a crowd. Two people sustained non-life-threatening injuries as a result of the gunfire. 

In a video obtained by Charlotte's WSOC TV, Newton is spotted partying at the venue before he, along with the rest of the party's attendants, ducked when shots were fired


Report: Panthers, Cam Newton continue extension talks


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2015) Quarterback Cam Newton's representation and the Panthers have continued to engage in contract extension talks during the NFL combine, reports the Charlotte Observer.

Newton, however, is in no rush to sign a deal as he's fine with waiting for Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and Colts quarterback Andrew Luck to hammer out new contracts first. That way, the quarterback market can reset, ensuring the maximum amount of dollars for Newton to earn.

In 14 games, Newton threw for 3,127 yards, 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He also ran for 539 yards and five touchdowns.


Panthers' Rivera: Cam Newton is as healthy as he's been in long time


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) Panthers coach Ron Rivera wouldn't discuss the contract status of Cam Newton, but told reporters during his combine press conference on Thursday that he is not in the market for a quarterback. The team appears to be sold on Newton, who is entering the final year of his four-year, $22,025,498 rookie contract, according to ESPN. He is due to make $14.67 million in 2015.

Rivera noted that he recently met with Newton and that he is as healthy as he has been in a very long time. Newton, No. 1 overall pick of the 2011 draft, threw for 3,127 yards with 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 2014.


GM Gettleman 'confident' Panthers will sign Cam Newton to new deal


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton will be a free agent after the 2015 season unless he comes to terms with Carolina on a contract extension. It appears, however, the Panthers are working hard to make it happen.

"What I feel confident of is, in time, something will happen," general manager Dave Gettleman told the Charlotte Observer. "He’s our franchise quarterback. I want him here."

Newton, who was the No. 1 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, is 30-31-1 in four seasons. He has led Carolina to two straight playoff appearances.


Panthers' Cam Newton tosses two touchdowns in loss


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/10/2015) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton tossed two touchdowns in the team's loss against the Seahawks.

Newton completed 23 of 36 passes for 246 yards and both scores. He was able to pull off some big plays during the contest, averaging 6.8 yards per completion. The Seattle defense did manage to put pressure on Newton quite a bit. While he was only sacked twice, Newton wound up picking up 11 rushing attempts. Some of those were designed runs, while other were a result of Newton running away from pressure. He gained 37 yards on the ground. 

With the Panthers down two scores in the fourth quarter, Newton threw a back-breaking interception that basically sealed the game for the Seahawks. Newton led a strong drive, but had to rush his throw after the Seahawks defense put pressure on him. Kam Chancellor read the play well, and wound up with a 90 yard touchdown. Newton would throw a touchdown on the team's next drive, but the game was already out of hand.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Newton also had seven carries for 35 yards and a fumble lost in the victory. Carolina will wait until Sunday to find out if they will travel to Seattle or Green Bay for the divisional round of the playoffs.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Newton found Ed Dickson for a 5-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter and broke free for a 4-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. It was his 33rd career rushing touchdown, tying John Elway, Otto Graham and Y.A. Tittle for 10th-most all time by a quarterback in league history.

Newton compiled 114 passing yards while completing 10 of 16 passes. He added one touchdown and no interceptions. He rushed for 51 yards and a score on six carries.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Coming off a back injury sustained in a car accident, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton played well in the clutch to lead his team to a critical victory Sunday against the Browns.

Newton led a 66-yard touchdown drive to provide the go-ahead score, completing the job on a 9-yarder to running back Jonathan Stewart, then fired a perfect 37-yard strike to tight end Ed Dickson to clinch it. Newton completed 6 of 7 for 100 yards in the fourth quarter and finished 18 of 31 for 201 yards.

He also rushed for 63 yards on 12 attempts, including a 2-yard scramble for a touchdown off play-action late in the second quarter. His lone major mistake was a terrible decision and flutter ball that resulted in a third quarter interception.

Newton will conclude the season next Sunday at Atlanta.

Panthers not ready to provide timetable for Cam Newton's return


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Monday he has no update on the progress of star quarterback Cam Newton's back injury, per the Associated Press.

"The biggest factor on playing Cam will be if he can protect himself," Rivera said.

Newton suffered two transverse fractures in his back during a two-car collision last week. Derek Anderson led the Panthers to a 19-17 victory over Tampa Bay on Sunday, and following the game Rivera said it was too soon to determine if quarterback Cam Newton (back) would return to action Week 16 against the Browns.

On Monday, he said there is a plan in place for Newton and that the goal is to get him back on the practice field "when he's ready."

"I don’t want to put a guy out there that can’t protect himself," Rivera said, per the Charlotte Observer. "By that it’s being able to run out of the way, scramble out of the way, stay alive, keep the play alive by being able to get away. That’s all part of it. That’s all part of the decision that went into the first Tampa Bay game."
