Former Blinn Buccaneer and 2015 NFL M.V.P. Cam Newton is looking for a new job.
The Carolina Panthers released Newton, the team's No. 1 overall selection in the 2011 draft, Tuesday.
Newton, who continues to rehab from foot surgery, had a physical in Atlanta on Monday, and passed.
Newton was the NFL MVP in 2015 when he led the Panthers to the Super Bowl, a 24-10 loss to Denver. The Panthers made Newton the top overall pick in the draft after he won the 2010 Heisman Trophy with the Auburn Tigers.
In 2009 he led the Blinn Buccaneers to the NJCAA National Championship. Newton had transferred to Blinn after two seasons at the University of Florida.
