Quarterback Cam Newton took his thoughts to social media during a workout on Wednesday.
During one of the videos in between a workout, Newton shouted out, “They gave up on me”, which obviously was directed to the organization.
Newton led Carolina to three straight NFC South titles from 2013-15, and a Super Bowl appearance during the 2015 season.
Newton had previously stated he never wanted to leave Carolina. When the Panthers announced last week they were letting the quarterback seek a trade, Newton wrote on the Panthers’ Instagram comments section it wasn’t his decision.
“Stop with the word play,” he wrote. “There is no dodging this one. I love the Panthers to death and will always love you guys. Please do not try and play me or manipulate the narrative and act like I wanted this, you forced me into this.”
Newton missed 16 regular-season games over the last two years due to a foot injury that required a procedure. He also had multiple shoulder surgeries in his career. A new team will likely sign Newton in the coming days.
