Carolina Panthers receiver Robbie Anderson has always had love for Cam Newton, even prior to playing with him last season. In fact, he considers the quarterback, whom he briefly talked about on Wednesday, family.

ESPN’s David Newton (no actual relation either) capped off Anderson’s media availability by asking if he’s stayed in contact with Cam. And he has.

“I had talked to bro, hollered at brother just a minute ago. Tapped in with him,” he said following the team’s latest training camp outing. “But, ya know, I don’t really consider bro a friend. I consider bro family.”

The seventh-year wideout was then asked by Joseph Person of The Athletic if he’s surprised that the NFL’s former Most Valuable Player isn’t currently on a roster. And he’s not.

“I think that if he wanted to, he probably could,” he’d add. “I think bro probably just wanna make sure he choose the right situation for himself.”

This is pretty much what Newton has maintained about the current state of his football career. Upon returning to and finishing up with Carolina for the 2021 campaign, Newton has said he’s been waiting on the right opportunity.

Whatever that means, we don’t yet know—as he’s remained on the open market this late into the year. But maybe we’ll get an answer soon enough, when the grind of the regular season (or the aftermath of a potentially long suspension) eventually begins.
