Cam Newton announced he would throw at Auburn’s Pro Day, and Shannon Sharpe issues a stern reality check to the former MVP.
If you do not follow the NFL closely you might be shocked to learn Cam Newton is unemployed and the phone isn’t ringing with opportunities for the former MVP. To paint the picture clearly, you are more likely to catch Cam on twitch playing Madden than on any field with a football. The situation is heartbreaking when you look back on his career even on his days at Auburn. We’ve witnessed Cam go on a solo mission to defeat Nick Saban and the University of Alabama then win Auburn a national championship. We even saw him take the Carolina Panthers to a Super Bowl all within a short span of time. For him to be unemployed just really doesn’t make sense and Cam knows this just like us.
It seemed Cam had given up his NFL quarterback dreams but Monday he uploaded a video to Instagram stirring the pot. He called out teams for picking nobodies over him and announced he would throw at Auburn’s Pro day. This is a bold move and many can call it desperate but sometimes you have to pull a hail mary. Shannon Sharpe decided to issue a reality check to Cam on Undisputed and wants people to start being honest with Cam.

Cam Newton Throws 30 Passes During Auburn’s Pro Day But Skips Media Interviews
According to ESPN, during Auburn’s Pro Day Cam threw 30 passes but declined to talk to reporters. However, his younger brother Caylin Newton didn’t shy away from talking about his older brother’s participation.
“This was him showing love to me,” Caylin Newton said of his older brother. “He doesn’t owe anybody anything. He has had an amazing journey, an amazing career in the NFL. He has nothing to prove to anybody. … He came to show his ability, show he still has it.
“I think, for him, this was a selfless act. But it was also to show and prove to everybody he’s not sitting around. He’s still got it. Whatever organization wants to get a winning quarterback, his number’s still open and available.”
Caylin seemed to appreciate his older brother showing up while everyone else questioned Cam’s involvement. Social media and sports media can slander Cam but if his brother is happy nothing else really matters.
Over half the posts were about a player who played there in 2010.
If Cam wasn’t “trying to take the shine away” from the 14 other players participating then Auburn’s… pic.twitter.com/1RSGWku9b8
