Cam Newton Reportedly Now Vaccinated, Hopeful To Make NFL Return

Will Newton get picked up by an NFL team now?


Cam Newton on Friday teased across social media that he had an announcement to make Saturday.

Could we know what it is before he confirms?

Newton reportedly is vaccinated against COVID-19 and that while there is “nothing imminent” surrounding his free-agent status, teams that have been in contact with the quarterback have been told he received his vaccination.

“Nothing really imminent with Newton right now. But teams have had communication throughout the first couple weeks of the season with him. And I am told that those teams have been told that Cam Newton is vaccinated,” NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo said during “Good Morning Football.” “… Now this was a big topic in the preseason. Remember he had to be down for five days because he didn’t keep up with the cadence of the testing…”

Newton re-signed with the New England Patriots in the offseason and, as Garafolo aluded to, missed five days of practice due to a miscommunication between him and the team when he traveled out of state for an appointment.

He later was released from the Patriots and since has been a free agent.

Many pointed to Newton’s vaccination as a potential reason for his release and ultimately still not being picked up by a team, but Pats head coach Bill Belichick debunked that.

Now we just have to wait and see if this report is true, and if it impacts Newton’s future in the NFL.
