Cam Newton hasn’t been in the NFL long but he knows the importance of being voted a team captain by your peers. This is what he said about it during training camp:

“I recognize, and everyone knows around the league, when you’re a team captain, that’s not just a patch on the jersey,” Newton said. “You’re holding yourself to a higher standard with being accountable. I’m going about it each and every day and trying to make that happen.”

It looks like Cam’s efforts have been rewarded and he teammates have voted him on of the team’s captains. Here is what Coach Ron Rivera had to say:

“I’m excited about who he’s becoming,” Rivera said. “Last year, you could see he was growing. Cam is still growing, but he’s also a little more mature a little more comfortable, a little more savvy.

“He’s learned a lot of things, and he can do those things that can help us, that can give us an opportunity to win football games.”

Ultimately, Cam is going to be judged on winning and I expect a big year from him this year as the Panthers might sneak up on some people.
