Newton to take part in player-organized workouts

Recommended Posts

Panthers' players are organizing informal workouts beginning next week in Charlotte - and the team's No. 1 draft pick plans to attend.

Cam Newton, the Auburn quarterback taken first overall in last month's draft, will be among those participating in the workouts at Charlotte Christian, one of Newton's agents said Tuesday.

Newton has been training at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., with former Panthers quarterback Chris Weinke and Ken Dorsey, another ex-NFL quarterback who played under Panthers offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski at the University of Miami.

But Tony Paige, one of Newton's two representatives, said the 2010 Heisman Trophy winner is looking forward to getting on the field with his Carolina teammates for the first time.

"When you're a rookie, especially as a quarterback, it's good to work on timing. But (it's) mainly getting around your teammates," Paige said. "I think Cam is excited about getting to know his teammates. Typically by now, he would know everybody."

Two agents getting to be a trend

"Players hiring tag-teams of agents are more common than you may think. They are usually a pairing where one agent has a lot of negotiating experience in with NFL teams and the other has developed a relationship with the player and his family."

Tony Paige has already been representing Cam's brother, Cecil Jr, for several years.

Just asking. How many players have multiple agents for the same responsibility?

One could be for football and the other could be for marketing and image.

I hope they do it somewhere private, cause the media storm especially with Cam there.

He is signed to an agency which has numerous people who specialize in specific thing.

My agent is actually a group of people who each handle television, film, writing etc

Do you really think it's like Jerry McGuire with people just driving around and screaming into cell phones?
