Cam Newton‘s resume speaks for itself.

Newton won a Heisman Trophy on the way to a national champions at Auburn in 2010. He went No. 1 overall in the 2011 NFL Draft. New was named the NFL MVP in 2015 and led the Carolina Panthers to the Super Bowl.

But now Newton is 33 years old and he’s been out of the league for nearly two years.

Newton’s fall from grace has been difficult to watch as the once dynamic athlete’s body has began to let him down. But he’s not giving up.

In fact, he’s doing the exact opposite.

Cam Newton To Work Out For NFL Scouts At Auburn Pro Day

Newton posted a video on Twitter on Monday revealing that he plans to work out at Auburn’s Pro Day on Tuesday.

“Tell me how these randoms keep getting jobs,” Newton asked. “Don’t worry about it. I’ma show. I can’t wait to show you. I love it. I love it.”

Newton’s video then showed a highlight package of him throwing before he revealed that he plans on throwing for NFL scouts at the event traditionally reserved for college athletes entering the NFL.

It’s not entirely uncommon, however, for players trying to work their way back into the NFL to work out at college pro days. And fans seemed all the way on board with Newton giving it a go.

I was writing a tweet on how absurd I thought this was…Then I thought, you know what…Good for Cam, he’s still able to pursue a dream that he has and maybe instead of criticizing everything in life, we can learn and appreciate life’s lessons. Follow your dreams,” Twitter used @MafiaMontage said.

“No reason why Cam shouldn’t have a job,” another used said.

Newton last played for the Carolina Panthers in 2021. It’s unlikely he’ll ever be a full-time NFL starter again. But he could make for a very capable backup. That is, if he’s willing to.
