Yeah good for him and all but IMO its just symbolic. Wonder why athletes do that so often?

Wonder if bill gates or mark zuckerberg went back to finish their degrees?

Because football isn't really a safe career and you could have a career-ending injury at anytime while playing?

Maybe Cam's ankle injury gave him a new perspective. Not to mention, you have to think about life after the NFL, how many athletes have gone broke after retiring?

Great move by Cam.

Even though he will have a very long and lucrative career in the NFL, there will be life after football. Having that college degree will definitely prove to be a big asset to him.

Really? Why would he need to go back when he already has a doctorate in SWAG?

I wonder how someone so limited mentally could hope to graduate from college?

Yes, I'm being sarcastic. That comment was directed at the "he's a mental midget" crowd.

Good job, Cam. We're proud of you.

By the way, this is just another example of how Cam is smart with his money.

How so?

He's not spending a dime of his own money to go to school. Auburn has a program (not unique... most "large" football programs have one) where former student-athletes can come back and finish their degrees. The cost to pay that tuition for former players is baked into the football program cake.

Cam wins again. ;)

What's Cam saving all this money for, anyways? Maybe he's planning on buying the Panthers 0_o
