Cam Newton Stays Fit with Offseason Water Polo

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is an intimidating presence on the football field.

At 6'6", 260 pounds, he dwarfs the typical NFL QB. He also has that LeBron James-like quality that makes it seem as though he crushes every sport he tries.

That includes water polo, apparently—or at least this photo gives that impression. The origin and circumstances of the image are mysterious, but one thing is clear: The man looks like a beast.

Update from Wednesday, April 13

Apparently, not even water can protect Newton from Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller:

Yep, that's @CameronNewton playing water polo. #AllinWithCam https://t.co/h9yQHUPsyR

Well played, Von.

--End of Update--

If not for Newton's pesky NFL obligations, the U.S. Olympic team might have a serious roster addition on its hands.
