Cameron Jerrell Newton is an absolute superstar in the world of the NFL. The man has got a style of his own and is also the NFL career leader in quarterback rushing touchdowns at 70. In his inaugural season, he caught everyone’s attention by setting the rookie records for passing and rushing yards by a quarterback.
Popularly known as the “Superman,” Newton was plagued by injuries after his MVP performance. Moreover, the performance of the Panthers also declined a great deal as they made the playoffs only on one occasion in their next four seasons. After missing the majority of the 2019 season, ‘Superman’ was released by Carolina and he ended up playing the 2020 season with the New England Patriots. However, the star player is now back to where he belongs.
