Cam Newton has been one of the defining sports figures of the past decade. He won the 2010 Heisman Trophy while leading Auburn to the national title. He won the 2015 NFL MVP award while leading the Carolina Panthers to a Super Bowl berth. He’s been honored, criticized, questioned, and released. As of Sunday, he’s been signed by the New England Patriots.
Over the last year, The Ringer’s Tyler R. Tynes has spoken to coaches, teammates, friends, family members, reporters, and even Newton himself on the QB’s life and career. The Cam Chronicles, a narrative podcast series, premieres on July 13.
