Cam Newton is hungry and motivated to prove his worth now that he’s agreed to terms with the New England Patriots.
The former NFL MVP posted a new vlog titled “Farewell Carolina, Hello New England,” on his YouTube channel.
In the video, Newton speaks from his home gym on March 17, which was the day the Panthers announced they gave him permission to seek a trade.
“I never once wanted to leave Carolina,” Newton says in the video. “Don’t let them believe, don’t let them believe anything else. It was their decision. I stuck with it and I knew that so I asked for a trade. Everything else, that’s BS.”
“Right now, like I’m angry, I just feel let down but at the same time, I’m not bitter,” the athlete says in the vlog. “I know since the first day I came into this league, that this day was gonna come. I’ve been with the organization, a great organization, for as long as I’ve been in the NFL. I’m sad for this day to come. But, at the end of the day, in the famous words of Nipsey [Hussle], ‘The marathon continues.'”

After highlights from his days in Carolina, Newton end the video with this:
“Oh, so much on my mind right now, but I’m going to keep this [expletive] brief,” Newton said. “I’m at your neck.”
