Cam Newton’s got a new target: Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
On Saturday, the 31-year-old quarterback posted a video of himself throwing passes to Beckham, practicing together at UCLA.
“Please do not get it twisted…. ‘Everyday’ I’m crafting!!” Newton captioned the clip, adding the hashtags “shine thru the shade” and “not for likes just for life.”
Newton remains the top quarterback left on the NFL free-agent market following his release from the Carolina Panthers in March after nine seasons. The Panthers signed former Saints quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to a three-year, $63 million deal.
Newton was sidelined for most of his final season in Carolina due to an ongoing foot injury. He was placed on IR in November.
Though Newton’s NFL future remains unwritten, former coach Ron Rivera believes the adversity will fuel the quarterback’s fire.
“The one thing about Cam Newton with an edge for something to prove, don’t ever bet against him,” the new Redskins coach recently told Jay Glazer.
