Cam Newton has announced that he will taking part in Auburn’s Pro Day on Tuesday. The 33-year-old former Auburn star did not play in the NFL in 2022 but is attempting to reignite his NFL career.
Newton shared his decision in a video on Twitter Monday evening, starting the clip off by lamenting “how these randoms keep getting jobs” in the NFL.
“I’m seeing a lot of people toying the idea and it’s official. I will be throwing at Auburn’s Pro Day Tuesday,” Newton later says. “Ain’t 32 mother f—ers better than me.”
Newton was last a full-time starter in 2020, with the New England Patriots, where he started 15 games but was released during final roster cuts the next year. He ended up reuniting with the Carolina Panthers, the team that drafted him No. 1 overall in 2011.
Newton appeared in eight games with Carolina in 2021, making five starts. He threw for 684 yards, four touchdowns and five interceptions and also rushed for five scores.
