Cam Newton is scheduled to throw in all quarterback drills when the Panthers open mandatory minicamp on Tuesday as his rehabilitation from offseason shoulder ramps up.
Talking to Albert Breer of this MMQB, offensive coordinator Norv Turner stated Newton was casting for”the last month,” along with his public screen during minicamp is simply the next stage of the process.

“He has actually attacked this rehabilitation, and he has done everything he could do physically to return to where he is using the shoulder,” Turner told Breer over the weekend. “The rehabilitation’s gone great. Obviously, part of it he did his own, a major portion of it, until we got back. But since April 20 or so, when we got back, he has been totally engaged, both physically and mentally.
“It’s been fun to see him. He’s quite serious about the rehabilitation, but he’s been Cam. Everyone likes being around him. He brings energy every day, and he is very helpful with all the young quarterbacks.”
Turner joined the Panthers last season as Carolina attempted to evolve Newton’s game. The initial results were fantastic, as the offense screamed from the gate along with the Panthers got off to a hot start. Alas, Newton’s shoulder difficulty imploded the operation, resulting in the end-of-season crash.
Beginning with this week’s minicamp, Turner anticipates a much greater Newton in Year 2 of the scheme.
“His second year in a method, there was shift for Cam last year, change for me,” Turner said. “With the young players, their second year, we ought to see some actual growth — D.J. [Moore], and Curtis Samuel, and even Christian [McCaffrey]. I believe that we can be a really, very volatile crime, and his capacity to do so lots of things makes it very hard for defenses, and we are going to still mix some matters in where he’s the featured ball carrier. We know it begins with him.”
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday the rumblings coming out of the organization suggest that Newton is set to”unveil” a massive change to his throwing mechanics.
“From what I’m told this is going to be an unveiling than anything else. I’ve talked to several people who’ve watched Cam Newton throw and they are pretty giddy,” he said. “One of them telling me,’You’ve got to see this. You can’t wait to see this.’
“He’s gotten in a far better location physically and he’s going to make sure he’s in a position to throw the ball like only Cam Newton can for the next several decades, not only this season. Seems like we’re going to see anything quite different from Cam Newton this week”
It begins with Newton staying healthy and ensuring that his arm is on its way back to full strength. We get to see our full glimpse at how close he is this week.
