Cam Newton, yogurt salesman (2016)

Let me start by making a correction to something I wrote yesterday.

I was under the assumption that Cam Newton was already a free agent after Carolina signed Teddy Bridgewater away from division rival New Orleans, and signed the XFL's uncrowned MVP, P. J. Walker, trading Kyle Allen to Washington in the process.

Turns out Newton was still under contract to the Panthers, but management was ready to move on. It's been reported in the last few minutes that Carolina is planning on cutting Newton loose after all, so he can test the free agent market.

It's just the latest blow to Newton's career.

In 2017, Dannon cut Newton as the pitchman for Oikos Greek yogurt, replaced by actor-singer John Stamos.

Here's a sample of Newton shilling for yogurt:
