NFL Teams Take Note Of Cecil’s Involvement With Cam

When you see “Newton” and “NFL” in the same sentence, you probably think of Cam… the possible Top 10 quarterback pick.  But it’s Cecil — father of Cam — who continues to draw attention.

ESPN.com is reporting that Cecil has scheduled a media workout for his son on February 10th in San Diego.  Newton has been in California this week working with quarterbacks coach Georgia Whitfield to perfect his drop from under center.  His coach has been “blown away” by the results so far.

“Cam is ready arm-wise and footwork-wise,” Whitfield told ESPN’s Bruce Feldman.  “We’ve had a heckuva regimen, but has really made some giant strides in getting this routine from under center down.  His dad is seeing that, and saying ‘let’s go public before the (NFL) combine.’”

Every story concerning Newton at some point turns to “his dad.”  And that’s a concern for some NFL teams.  Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network reported earlier this week that some teams “are still wondering about that relationship (between Cam and Cecil).”  Front office personnel are “not just evaluating these young men, it’s their families and everyone around them that NFL teams are taking stock of as they decide whether to invest millions.”

Small tip — Since Newton doesn’t always know what his father’s up to, perhaps someone should make sure he’s aware of this workout his papa has set up for him.
