Cam Newton sat out the 2022 season, but may be looking to return to the NFL.
During his Auburn’s Pro Day on Tuesday, the 33-year-old decided to show scouts what he can still do on a football field. He was invited back to school where he won a Heisman Trophy and a national championship for throwing passes to his younger brother Caylin.
Caylin began his college football career as a quarterback, before later switching to wide receiver.

The former Carolina Panthers quarterback did not speak to the media after he threw around 30 passes to various Auburn athletes.
Wide receiver Shedrick Jackson was among the NFL hopefuls who caught passes from Newton on Tuesday.
«That was fun,» Jackson said. «That was probably my favorite part, learning the lingo from him, seeing the cadence from him. He’s got a good touch on the ball… I think he still has it.»
Netwon, who finished his professional football career with 5,628 rushing yards and 75 rushing touchdowns, also showed off his fighting ability during training. In what was perhaps the most impressive play of the day, Newton used his feet before connecting with Caylin on a 50-yard pass.
After being selected with the first overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, Newton went on to play nine consecutive seasons with the Panthers. His 2019 campaign was limited to just two games due to a broken Lisfranc. In 2020, he signed a one-year deal with the Patriots after future Hall of Famer Tom Brady left for Tampa Bay.
Newton rejoined Carolina midway through the 2021 season and went 0-5 as the starting quarterback.
He made headlines earlier this week when he revealed his plans to pitch at Auburn’s pro day on Twitter.
«Tell me how these randoms keep getting jobs?» Newton said in a video. «Don’t worry about it. I’ll show you. I can’t wait to show you.»

So the media has what they’re saying about who he is. I know who he is. And wherever he’s been, they know who he is.» also.»
