After Kaepernick stole Newton’s “Superman” touchdown celebration in the divisional round win over the Panthers, Newton jokingly vowed vengeance.
“He hurt my feelings, and I think so highly of Mr. Kaepernick,” Newton said on the NFL Network, via the Charlotte Observer.
He added that he planned to respond at some point, but didn’t drop any clues.
But unlike Kaepernick, who trashed Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman today, Newton was nothing but gracious to the other young quarterbacks having success.
“I don’t have no hate in my blood for nobody,” Newton said, though he admitted being “envious” of Russell Wilson playing this weekend.
