Cam Newton invited to NFL Draft

AP

We pointed out earlier this evening that Cam Newton was invited to the NFLPA* draft event, but it was unclear whether the league had invited him to Radio City Music Hall for the Draft.

It’s no longer unclear.   A league source informed Florio that Newton has received an invitation from the NFL.

It’s not known yet what Newton plans to do on draft night.  Now that antitrust lawsuit plaintiff Von Miller has decided to attend the draft, we figure that most prospects will follow.

  1. Warren Moon also now believes the draft is racist because Cam Newton didn’t get the first invite to the draft party.

  2. The mere fact that this poor young man now has to choose between TWO parties that want to honor him is just more evidence of the racism that is so rampant in today’s NFL (where he’ll be a millionaire before he throws his first pass…).

    Poor guy!

  3. I assume that the press, and others at the draft will be keeping a close eye on their laptops.

  4. Too late, he already received an invite to the NFLPA* event. The #1 pick may not be there to accept Goddell’s hand shake. Decisions, decisions. Do I hide and attend the players event or be an icon/entertainer and flash my smile stepping up to Goddell and make an a$$ out of myself.

  5. The NFLPA* offered $180,000 for his attendance. He’s waiting to see if the NFL will match the offer.

  6. At first he tried to steal a spot, until his father stepped in and demanded money for his sons appearance. After negotiations fell through a booster eventually stepped up and paid for his seat.

  7. hmmm blaine gabbert 16 tds to 9 int’s last year in the same spread offense as cam. Blaine made chase daniel look like john elway if u compare his #’s. and he had the nerve 2 say he is the best qb in the draft?? why know hate for him? I wish all you racist would just join 2gether and draft a all white team and we would all see how that would work out. haha

  8. ” Now that antitrust lawsuit plaintiff Von Miller has decided to attend the draft, we figure that most prospects will follow..” PFT

    What in the world would lead one to THAT conclusion? Von Miller carries that kind of weight with other potential draftees? I think not.

    Those that attend (or do not attend) will base their decision on 2 things. The first is what their agent tells them to do. And the second is their fear (or lack thereof) of serious payback from their new teammates in training camp.

    To this observer, there is no upside to attending the event. It won’t effect your draft spot. It won’t effect your relationship with your new coaches. And you will gain respect from the veterans on whatever team drafts you.

  9. It took a White Booster to Offered it.. and let me guess who was the middle Man? hmmm? Athletic Directors? Hmmm.. 9 out of 10.. times the Corrupt NCAA Boosters, Schools etc.. are pretty Much White.. but Blame the Black Kid for signing his name in Blood to the Devil..

  10. @henryjoneswhosucked..
    good to see you log your cry-baby Cam swallowing ass off to cry…because the NFL racist-slave owner-idiot who drafts this bust will pay him millions to cry along with ya…
    yo..yo..whaaa

    Warren Moon also now believes the draft is racist because Cam Newton didn’t get the first invite to the draft party.

    ijr213, I’m not going to let you get away with the sarcasim. If you do not think that some elements of racism is involved than you are delusional. People like always try to turn away like there is no longer any racism. As Warren Moon said, Sam Bradford played in a spread offense. Also, Blaine Gabbert but you hear nothing about this. Only when black quarterbacks play in one. Additonally Peyton Manning and Tom Brady was not under center the majority of the time this year.

  12. I know see where all the kids hang out.

    I guess when you don’t see things the way fools want you to see them, they simply attack you. Just the way Nolan was intitled to his OPINION, so is Mr Moon.

    Don’t worry, many of you attacking Moon are simply repeating that small-minded attitude of the past. White folks in the past never felt they were wrong with how they were treating blacks either. The kept pushing the envelope and defended their behavior. Funny, a majority of them pretty much behave the way many of you are right now when someone called them out on what they were doing. The more we think we’re changing is the more we remain the same.

    All of a sudden now a black kid making millions in sports is new grounds to cross the boundaries into being belligerent and borderline racist.

  13. “All of a sudden now a black kid making millions in sports is new grounds to cross the boundaries into being belligerent and borderline racist.”

    WHAT!? There’s nothing racist about having negative opinions of a guy. Not once was skin color ever mentioned about Cam until Warren Moon opened his mouth. I understand that Warren came from a more racist time, but come on, no one is judging Cam because of his skin color. Especially a NFL scout who works in a league where the majority of players have darker skin.

    For every Sam Bradford there’s a Jimmy Claussen (bad character) or Tim Tebow (bad mechanics) that gets destroyed by scouts. It happens to all people of every race at all positions. Let it go.

  14. WHATSWTHTHEATHELETSE: very well said and very sickining. jealous ppl who never fulfilled there dreams,so they wish 2 go on the attack of black players. wish 2 go they would just go watch hockey or lacrosse

  15. Genius idea here. And… this is just an idea here, so stick with me. But, like, what if someone commented on this article and they were all like, “yeah, whichever one pays his dad more!” or something along those lines. That’d be GOLD. Original. Thought-provoking. Hilarious.

  16. Whats kind of alarming is that people seem to think that a rookie will be “punished” for attending the draft by players. Ummm really? Do you people not understand that the point of football is to inflict punishment on your opponent? THINK PEOPLE!
