Rivera's giving Cam the okay to kick butt in the locker room. That's my take on it anyway. Here's an excerpt:
"I think the one thing is his leadership, just keep developing that," Rivera said. "We always talked about how respectful he was to the veteran guys. He didn't want to step on people's toes or get in people's way."
Rivera said Newton won't have to worry about that next season.
"I told him you'll be the veteran," Rivera said.
