Cam Newton - Marketing Image
Posted 17 May 2013 - 09:38 PM
I tend to disagree with that article (on some respects)... Newton is already doing great on the endorsement front (UnderArmour, Gatorade, Footlocker, Belk, GQ, Windows Phone, SportsCenter, NFL Commercials)
If I'm not mistaken that UA deal was a record deal being that he received the largest contract ever for an incoming rookie (to work with UA).
That being said, he can still do more by simply getting the Panthers to the playoffs (that is where I agree with the article).

I thought it was a pretty good article. Cam's good looks go a long way.

I took the article literally, as asking if can Cam cash in as a pitchman?
Well in my opinion, he already has, see my first post.
Next to Matthews and Cruz; Newton appears on more current commercials than any NFL player I know.
Obviously commercials aren't the only form of endorsements, but they probably bring in the most money next to shoe contracts.
I still believe Cam can do more in the marketing realm, but he's not doing bad by any stretch.

I purchase everything Cam tells me to. Dude is gonna make me go broke.

On the contrary, I will purchase nothing Griffin the third endorses because Redskin fans are idiots.
Well, Bob G3 is tied to Adidas right now, whom ironically could be called the ACL killers lol Bob tore his and so did Derrick Rose. not sure that is a product I would buy anyway

“He’s playing in Carolina," Shabelman said. "If they’re undefeated and they’re 12-0 going into the last five weeks of the season, that’s great, but they’re still in Carolina, and that’s not a major market. Sometimes people even forget there’s a team there.”
Ouch...that was a tough one to swallow
