A question that many NFL fan has asked: Why quarterback Cam Newton isn’t on an NFL roster list?
Cam Newton is an American football quarterback who is a free agent. He has played for 11 seasons, primarily with the Carolina Panthers. He is the NFL all-time leader in his career and won a lot of awards.
Despite battling with injuries over the past few years, Newton is now 33 years old. He appears in good physical shape. His days as a franchise player and MVP candidate are likely behind him, but it’s quite strange that a player of his level and with much experience can’t find a place as a veteran backup as well.
Now Newton has his own theory on why he hasn’t been able to make a place with another team, and it has nothing to do with his ability on the field.
“It’s [referring to his chance of being on a roster] been hindered and I’m not changing,” he told CBS Sports’ Josina Anderson.
“I think his hieroglyphic type fonts are hindering his chances more than his hair/clothes,” one fan commented on the tweet.
“Yes, his dreadlocks are the main reason he is not in the league. Can’t think of anything else,” A Fan commented in a sarcastic way.
“This doesn’t make any sense. So many other players have crazy hair and fashion in the NFL and are on teams”, said a verified user.
Seems like a fan trying to tell the truth.
“Cam cmon bro what the hell are we talking about right now,” RB replied.
“I don’t think there are any other ex-NFL players I dislike more than 1. Antonio Brown and 2. Cam Newton,” said Cory.
However, Cam Newton recently said he’s open to being a backup to some quarterback, but it doesn’t seem like his level of interest from around the league has changed.
