Cam Newton isn’t calling it quits just yet.
The veteran quarterback just finished his one-year deal with the New England Patriots, which was iffy at best.
Newton went 7-8 during his lone season with the Pats. He completed eight passing touchdowns, rushed for 12 and was intercepted 10 times.
And while his future in the league remains uncertain, Newton isn’t considering retirement as free agency approaches.
“Hell no! I can’t go out like that,” Newton said on an upcoming episode of the “I Am Athlete” podcast, per the Boston Herald’s Karen Guregian. “I hear all of that talk. My pride won’t allow me to do it.”
In fact, he thinks, “There aren’t 32 guys better than me.”
To say Newton is a mixed bag is a bit of an understatement. It’ll be interesting to see which team, if any, takes a chance on him in 2021 — or beyond.
