Cam Newton has revealed that he is willing to become a backup quarterback in the NFL and Twitter folks are having a field day on the App. They are trolling him and claiming things are too bad for him that he now wants to become a backup quarterback in the NFL. That’s too low for him.
According to SportsKeeda;
After Cam Newton said he’s willing to play as a backup quarterback in the NFL, he sent ripples across the sport. It will certainly interest general managers who are looking for a high-caliber former MVP as their quarterback. It also means that he will come at a lower price than previously imaginable.
It also set off fans who reacted to the news. It is not every day that a former MVP is willing to sit on the bench to get back in the league. Social media followers commented on his new status, often tinged with a sense of disbelief how far his standing has fallen.
Cam Newton reiterated his stance that he does not believe there are 32 quarterbacks better than him. He said he still has his eyes set on being the first-choice quarterback somewhere.
However, Newton then rattled off a list of quarterbacks he is willing to sit behind, confirming that he is willing to look at a backup role to get back in the league. This is not a bad course of action for a player who did not suit up last season. He highlighted that the first three quarterbacks he would be open to starting behind: Deshaun Watson, Lamar Jackson and Justin Fields, in order.
Despite his confidence, the choice of players he is willing to back up seems to indicate that he is open to even being a third-choice quarterback. He mentioned Malik Willis as one of those players. Anyone who saw Willis play for the Tennessee Titans will not have him as the starter this season. This seems to indicate that Newton is alright sitting behind both Ryan Tannehill and Malik Willis.
That would be quite the comedown for a former MVP like Cam Newton.
While Cam Newton might have inside news of Ryan Tannehill being traded or cut, it is still unlikely that Malik Willis will be the starter this season. What feels more likely is that he misspoke. However, that we are even considering such possibilities for a once-fearsome player shows just how the tables have turned on him.
Cam Newton has his work cut out to come back into the league, and the fans realize that as much as him. At the moment, even being a third-stringer does not seem out of the ordinary for him.
