Cam Newton has been throwing the football for about a month, but the public got their first glimpse of the Carolina’s QB1 and what has been reported as a massive change to his throwing mechanics Tuesday morning – something the Panthers are reportedly “giddy” about.
“From what I’m told this is going to be more of an unveiling than anything else. I’ve talked to several people who’ve watched Cam Newton throw and they are pretty giddy,” he said. “One of them even telling me, ‘You’ve got to see this. You can not wait to see this.’Per NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport
Carolina lived-streamed Newton’s new throwing motion as nearly 40 thousand fans watched from their Twitter account.
Newton threw about 30 passes during the first mandatory minicamp practice. Head Coach Ron Rivera says today’s display was just the first step of many.
“The shoulder started to go, then you started to see everything fall to the wayside. Now he has an opportunity to go back, rework those things, do the things that he needs to do to improve. He’s done a great job and we’re really excited about it. As I said, this is just the first step of many and we’re really looking forward to tomorrow to see how much more he’s going to do.”
Minicamp continues tomorrow at 8:30am.
