Cam Newton’s brother joins the Saints

With the UFL circling the drain, it appears that the league has given its players the ability to abandon their contracts.

That’s the obvious implication of the news that center Cecil Newton, older brother of Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, has signed with the Saints.

And so both Newtons will be in the NFC South this year.  Assuming that Cecil Newton will stick on the Saints’ 53-man roster.

The elder Newton previously played for the Jaguars.  He was on the active roster for two games in 2010, but he did not play.

    Too bad he doesn’t play defense. That would be more fun to see Cecil sacking his little brother!

    I see similar career arcs running in that family.

    Wonder how much their dad got when Cecil signed with the college that he attended?

    I guess this means the end for Goodwin if they’re signing Newton before him. Matt Tennant should be ready to start by now.

    They will be in the same division if he makes the team.

    Ahhh, the unathletic, forgotten brother. Daddy disowned you because you didn’t get him paid like Cam.

    Did Cecil have to take a paycut like his brother did when he signed with a NFL team ?

    @kmurph…..that is funny as his Dad probably didn’t get a dime off of him…..Cam made up for it though, so Dad is happy!

    Obviously his talent isn’t worth $180k to Auburn or else we would have heard of him before.

    The Frank Stallone school of signing free agents!

    Hey Mike, great great piece of reporting, like forgetting to tell us what position Cecil plays.

    What if he was the starting center for the Panthers? Then Cam would have to put his hands under his brother’s junk all day.

    Cecil Newton’s brother joined the Panthers. Get it straight.

    goodwin was asking for too much for someone to hold his stuff during the game. sorry goodwin hello cecil

    Dude couldn’t stick with the pathetic Jags and he’s going to make the SB contending Saints? Yeah, sure. He’ll be on Cam’s “security/posse” payroll before long.

    I’m sure Sean Peyton was on one of his drug binges when he saw the name Newton on the waiver wire. In his drunken stuper, he signed him because he thought it was Cam Newton. Vicodin signing.
