Cam Newton has been slinging it during minicamp for the Panthers.
The star quarterback had to have a shoulder procedure, and there have been lots of questions about how he’d return when he finally started letting the ball fly again. Judging from the view videos I’ve seen, he’s going to be just fine.
You can watch a few videos of his throws below. It also appears like he might even have a bit of a different motion, but go ahead and check it out for yourself. (RELATED: Cam Newton Will Throw During Panthers Minicamp When It Begins Tuesday)

Given how little information we’ve had about Newton’s status for awhile, I think he looks just fine. Of course, it’s only camp.
It doesn’t mean much at all. There aren’t defenses trying to take his head off, but he clearly has no problem sending the ball where he wants it to go.
If you’re a fan of the Panthers, you have to be pretty happy right now.

My guess is Newton should be just fine and ready to go whenever the Panthers decide to really crank things up. At the very least, the fans better hope so.
Without Newton, the Panthers are going to suck. That much is for sure. They need him more than any other player on the roster and there isn’t a close second.
