Newton Interview: Sneezing, Bo Jackson, Durantula and Jerry West

Scott Cunningham

Super Cam answers some questions from ESPN's Carrie Champion and even busts an improv rhyme while he is at it. Take a look at one of Cam Newton's best offseason interviews.

Cam Newton wants Bo Jackson as his historically hypothetical teammate | The War Eagle Reader
This weekend, ESPN First Take’s Cari Champion asked the Blessed Individual who, if he could turn back time—and we’re not convinced he can’t, he would want as a teammate from any age, from any time period?

So the questions start out pretty mundane but then the topic moves to basketball and what he would rather be doing than an NFL QB.

Champion: 'You hate it when people ______.'

Newton: sneeze without covering their mouth.'

Champion: If you could play any other position what would it be?

Newton: WR (duh)

Champion: If you could go back in time and play with any player who would it be?

Newton: Bo Jackson

No surprise on the Jackson answer. Remember Jackson was one of the few people leading up the 2011 draft that said Newton was going to be a star.


They then turn to basketball and then she challenges Newton to bust a rhyme and honestly he did pretty good off of the top of his head. Check it out!

Looks like Newton is starting to tap into that 'Icon & Entertainer' potential that he so boldly declared after being drafted by the Panthers #1 overall.

[aaachooo!]
