Before I go any further, I have to explain that I was reading Peter King's column this week ONLY to see what/if he would say anything about Cam Newton not talking to him after practice yesterday. I certainly wouldn't be reading it otherwise! Anyway, I found this about (the one and only) PFT's Mike Florio and Jay Feely getting into it on Twitter.
2:29 p.m., @ProFootballTalk: "It's a four-year, $12 million contract with $4 million signing bonus for Mare. A kicker.''
2:46 p.m., @ProFootballTalk: "Of course, Mare hasn't actually 'signed.' He agreed to terms. Which gives Panthers two days to come to their senses.''
2:52 p.m., @jayfeely: "NBC gave a lawyer w/no football experience a big contract.''
2:58 p.m., @ProFootballTalk: "@jayfeely ... At least we have something in common. Neither of us has actually played in an NFL game.''
3:52 p.m., @jayfeely: "now you sound like Skip Bayless. Come to camp, see if they can find shoulder pads small enough for you & we can find out''
King's comments on Cam after the jump...
Watching Cam Newton Sunday night in Spartanburg, S.C., three things were evident: He's a confident kid, even though he doesn't know half of what he needs to know yet. He's very well-liked by the fans, and that's helped by signing as many autographs as any Panther in camp so far. And though his accuracy is very much a work in progress (he missed six or eight open receivers Sunday), he does throw a beautiful deep ball -- as he did to wideout David Gettis late in practice, a 45-yard throw that landed in Gettis' arms perfectly.
Nothing *too* bad but it does seem like he writes it with bitterness. Really Peter? You realized Cam doesn't know half the things he needs to know watching a single practice? Sorry, but that's highly doubtful.
Honestly, I expected worse. And I didn't even look to see if this was already posted so huge apologies if it was.
