In a pair of black-and-white clips recorded following one of his recent workouts, Newton gives himself, his fans and his detractors a pep talk about where he's at this offseason.
"You know what makes this s--t different is they ain't never seen this Cam," Newton begins. "... Cause you want to know how I know? S--t, I ain't never seen him."
Newton goes on to detail how he's waking up each day with renewed energy and embracing the grind after waiting months for a new contract as a free agent after being released by the Carolina Panthers this offseason.
"Felt like I was just left to die," Newton said. ". .. 'It's over with for him, he ain't the same player.' ... I love it. I adore it. I admire it."
At the end of the second video, Newton recalls when his son, Chosen, asked him if they're heading back to Charlotte for another season with the Panthers.
"We're going north," Newton recalls saying, flashing a wide smile to the camera.
