Cam Newton coming to Charlotte April 5
By Pat Yasinskas
Auburn quarterback Cam Newton will make his official pre-draft visit to Charlotte and the Carolina Panthers on April 5.
Coach Ron Rivera said at the NFL owners meeting in New Orleans earlier this week the Panthers will begin bringing in draft prospects for visits next week. Rivera said the Panthers will bring in eight guys they are considering as the top pick and also will bring in some other candidates for spots later in the draft.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Newton’s itinerary currently is set up like this: He’ll work out for the Dolphins at Auburn on Sunday and visit the Buffalo Bills on Monday. The Minnesota Vikings have scheduled a visit and workout with Newton on April 3 and April 4.
After visiting Carolina, Newton will visit Tennessee on April 7. After that, Newton is scheduled to visit with Cincinnati April 12 and Cleveland April 13. He’ll also visit the Redskins on April 15 and the Broncos on April 17.
