iknowcool Posted June 11, 2019 Share Posted June 11, 2019 Cam Newton is scheduled to throw at mini-camp tomorrow and the Panthers will be live-streaming it. That is already a big enough deal considering there were concerns at the time of the surgery over how long until he would be ready, but by all accounts the recovery has went as smoothly as possible. But there's bigger news than that which could make a huge difference in Cam Newton's long-term future with the Panthers. A couple of weeks ago Tepper hinted that Cam Newton would come back different and it seems this is what he was alluding to: https://pantherswire.usatoday.com/2019/06/10/panthers-cam-newton-throwing-mechanics-change/ NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that the rumblings coming out of the organization suggest that Newton is set to “unveil” a massive change to his throwing mechanics. “From what I’m told this is going to be more of an unveiling than anything else. I’ve talked to several people who’ve watched Cam Newton throw and they are pretty giddy,” he said. “One of them even telling me, ‘You’ve got to see this. You can not wait to see this.'” If true and successful, this would be huge. The ability has always been there with Newton and when he's on his game, not many are better. He's just too scattershot sometimes and a lot of that has to do with his mechanics. If the Panthers were able to get him to commit to a better throwing motion to help compensate for his shoulder, that would just make this offseason even better. I have faith in Newton, always have. I don't think he needs to be great this year either, and we don't need to ask him to be Superman like we have in the past. This teams is seriously talented, we just need a consistent Cam. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
