Cam Newton is usually making headlines during press conferences for his choice of eccentric outfits, but today, it’s for all the wrong reasons.
The Panthers quarterback was asked a question by The Charlotte Observer’s Jourdan Rodrigue, and got a response from Newton saying it was “funny hearing female talk about routes.”

With Newton coming off his best game of the season in a win over the Patriots at home, this might take some attention away from the huge step forward for the Panthers this week during practice.
The team has released a statement including an apology, although an NFL official said Newton did not apologize.
