Cam Newton Joins In at Panthers Three-Day Rookie Camp

The Panthers’ first-year players and selected veterans will get a jump on training camp this week with a three-day rookie camp that starts Monday at the team’s Charlotte practice facility.

Cam Newton, the NFL Rookie of the Year in 2011, and the other quarterbacks will participate in the pre-training camp sessions to get their timing down with the Panthers’ new receivers, Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

A number of players who did not practice during organized team activities (OTAs) and minicamp due to injury also will attend the rookie camp.

“That’ll give us a chance to get those guys a little more acclimated because they really didn’t get a chance to participate in minicamp,” Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. “It’ll give us a chance to see where they all are. Hopefully, they’re all 100 percent.”

    Cam will be OK. He should understand that he is and will be judged by a different measurement than others, since started out with so many people wanting him to fail. Those same people will be holding out, waiting for the least little flaw, so they can justify their “wrong” prediction.

    Cam will have to put together a playoff run, where others would just have to win one more than last year or throw one more TD or one less INT. Cam understands and is preparing himself to deal with the challenges on and off the field.

    What he’s looking for is progress and he’s on his way.
