Cam Newton wants to win.
The Carolina Panthers could take a big step in the right direction by making a play for Dwight Freeney.
Last year, Charles Johnson led the team and posted nine sacks. He tallied 11.5 sacks the year before, and at 25 years old his best years are still ahead of him.
The Panthers as a team, however, finished the season tied for 25th in the NFL after they only posted 31 sacks.
Freeney is the perfect mentor to bring in for Johnson.
Both men are approximately the same size, and I guarantee Johnson won't be able to do anything but get better going forward with Freeney showing him the ropes.
Bringing in Freeney will also be good for the locker room. After spending the last 10 seasons as a member of the Indianapolis Colts, Freeney is accustomed to winning and will bring in the right kind of attitude and work ethic into the culture of the franchise.
