Typically when you hear "NFL Player" and "TMZ" in the same sentence it's normally not going to be good. With previous off-field issues like Pacman Jones and Michael Vick becoming part of the national consciousness in part to TMZ having a knack for finding players at their worst. I'll admit, when TMZ contacted me with the title "Cam Newton- Off-Season Ballin' in Hotlanta with Rappers" I was a little scared to follow the link, but ultimately it was another case of Newton handling himself perfectly given the circumstances. As TMZ said
Even though it's the off-season ... we're told Cam was partying in mid-season form -- he and Common tipped back bottled water all night.
That's right, bottled water. Our QB ensured he didn't step out of line, or do anything that could bring his name or team into disrepute. Unfortunately for detractors they'll have to keep waiting for Cam to screw up, something they keep pining for with bated breath.
