Well it looks like that may not be what Cam Newton wanted at all. The above picture is what the Carolina Panthers posted on Instagram after announcing that trade decision, but Newton commented that he was “forced” into trade talks. Which then brought out another comment from Greg Olsen implying that the same happened to him.

Cam Newton commented on the above picture, 

“Stop with the world play! I never asked for it! There is no dodging this one, I love the Panthers to death and will always love you guys! Please do not try and play me, or manipulate the narrative and act like I wanted this, you forced me into this! -1ove” 

Then Greg Olsen commented, 

“Sounds familiar” 


Very interesting to say the least.
