Panthers Safety: Cam Newton knew his shoulder was “shot” in 2018, ready for comeback

The Big Game

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was well aware his shoulder was in terrible shape last season and he’s ready for a return to MVP form, according to his teammate.

Panthers safety Mike Adams joined Big Game Bound: Live from Atlanta on Thursday to give the inside scoop on Newton’s shoulder after recently having surgery. 

“I was at his house last night,” said Adams with a smile. “Went over to his house, we had dinner. Me, him, Thomas Davis, couple of guys, Josh Norman even came through.”

“He says he’s feeling good. My boy is good. And the goal is to get back to where he was three years ago, that MVP year.”

Adams addressed Newton’s obvious struggles throwing the ball downfield, which was most evident when he was benched for a hail mary pass against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

“He knew it was shot, he knew his shoulder was shot,” Adams said of Newton. 

“But we still perservered and we still played hard for him, he played hard for us, and that’s all you can ask out of a quarterback.”
