Cam Newton Goes Back to School!!!

TMZCarolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton knows … he’s gotta have a backup plan if the whole NFL thing doesn’t work out … so he’s heading back to college.

Newton — who blew off school to become the #1 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft — has re-enrolled at Auburn University for the spring semester to continue working on his sociology degree.

FYI — Newton signed a 4-year, $22 million contract with the Panthers when he first left Auburn … and has undoubtedly racked up millions more through various endorsement deals.

Still, it’s clear Newton knows you can’t put a price on a good education … and made the decision to go back.

A rep for the school told the Associated Press Cam won’t be talking to the media about his decision because he just “wants to focus on school and be a normal student.”

Detroit Lions Calvin “Megatron” Johnson Wins Votes To Cover Madden ’13!!! {VIDEO}

Fresh off a mega contract, Calvin “Megatron” Johnson has landed the coveted cover of “Madden NFL 13.”

The Detroit Lions wideout beat out second-year Panthers quarterback Cam Newton for the honor. The vote was announced Wednesday afternoon on “SportsNation” on ESPN2.

Johnson, who won by garnering 52 percent of the more than 651,000 votes cast in the competition, said he was “shocked” by the decision.

“Man, it’s great,” a smiling Johnson said. “Just to see yourself on this Madden (cover) and seeing all the guys that have been on Madden? C’mon, man.”


Although hugely popular, the video game carries the stigma of a “Madden Curse.”

Running back Peyton Hillis, then a member of the Cleveland Browns, won the fan vote last year, but was plagued by injuries and controversy in a hectic 2011 season. Hillis said before winning the “Madden NFL 12” cover that he wasn’t afraid of the curse, but after rushing for just 587 yards last season, Hillis said in December that he now believes in the cover jinx.

Johnson is coming off a spectacular season in which he caught 96 passes for a league-best 1,681 yards and 16 touchdowns. He became the third player in NFL history with at least 95 receptions, 1,600 yards and 15 touchdowns in a season, joining Jerry Rice and Randy Moss.

The Lions, who made the playoffs last season for the first time in a dozen years, rewarded the former No. 2 overall pick with an eight-year deal worth up to $132 million dollars in March.

The competition for the cover drew nearly 20 million votes, with Johnson beating out Dwayne Bowe, Arian Foster, Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Rodgers before the final showdown with Newton.

Ciara Hooks-Up with NFL Rookie–Cam Newton!!!


Rumor has it that the sexy R&B songstress, CC-aka-Ciara may have hooked up with NFL Rookie, Cam Newton. WTFeezy?!?!
Now, if I remember correctly, when Cam was drafted and asked (during an interview) about the possibilities of getting caught up in the “celebrity-lifestyle” and with other women, he said he had no interest and was completely happy with his college sweetheart.

Uh–well, I guess that’s a myth because, over the weekend Cam and CC were spotted in Atlanta, hanging out at Atlantic Station, supposedly all snuggled up holding hands. AND, later on that evening, Ciara tweeted “LOVE brings out the KID IN YOU #sweetlove”

I don’t know about you guys but I’m taking that as confirmation…not that the two are a pair but that Cammy Cam is waaay over his college sweetheart. That is only if he got some of CC’s “goodies”

Later DoLLs!
