Locker Room Lawyer, Episode 10: Cam Newton The Carolina Panthers quarterback feels he isn’t protected from hard hits like other quarterbacks
In this week’s edition of Locker Room Lawyer, Clinton Yates and Domonique Foxworth take the case of Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton to The Undefeated courtroom.
On Sunday during a postgame news conference following the Panthers’ 30-20 win over the Arizona Cardinals, Newton expressed his displeasure about the lack of late-hit calls he receives, especially compared with those received by other quarterbacks in the NFL, adding that he planned to go as far as to address the issue personally with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
“At times, I don’t even feel safe. Enough is enough,” Newton said. “I plan on talking to Commissioner Goodell about this. It’s not fun, and I don’t know what I have to do.”
On Tuesday, ESPN’s Ed Werder reported that the NFL has concluded that the Cardinals should have been flagged for an illegal hit on Newton in Sunday’s game. Goodell has also reportedly promised to speak to Newton.
In the meantime, Domonique, a former NFL cornerback and our Locker Room Lawyer, has Newton’s back, and the numbers are in his favor. On the other hand, Clinton argues that the real problem lies in the inherent danger of the sport.
Will the verdict be in Newton’s favor?
