New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton has always been known to be a one-of-a-kind guy. And his newest motivation to prove his haters wrong is exactly the same, “one-of-a-kind”.

Cam Newton often includes trash cans in his training regime and recently revealed the intention behind it. In an Instagram post Cam said, “Getting back to the basics and working the craft!! Also having a constant reminder of keeping motivation close enough to you to remind you what not to be… and that’s trash.
Do you still believe in Cam Newton? @brgridiron

Cam Newton’s Debut season as a Patriot
Anybody following the shoes of Tom Brady in New England was expected to have it rough. And Cams debut Patriots season was anything but an exception. The former Carolina Panther threw for only 2,657 yards and 8 touchdowns in 15 games as a starter. Newton also had only 242 completions and 10 interceptions in his 15 starts.
Cam Newton’s first few games started off great. Newton won his first game as a Patriot, was a last-second goal-line stop away from beating the Seahawks, and then beat a very good Las Vegas Raiders team. But then the COVID-19 bug hit him and he was unable to produce at a high level consistently on his return.
Cam Newton had 8 touchdown passes in 15 starts last season, the fewest TD passes by a QB to make 15 starts over the last 20 seasons.
Newton also led QBs with 12 rushing TDs in 2020, and became the first QB in NFL history to have at least 10 Rush TD in 3 different seasons pic.twitter.com/OaeI0B9kFD

What to expect from Cam Newton in 2021?
Amid all the outside noise, Newton has become even more motivated to prove his haters wrong in the upcoming season. And his interesting motivation tactic is a testament to that. Bill Belichick put his faith in Newton by resigning him to a fresh 1-year contract. And with the likes of Jonnu Smith, Hunter Henry and Nelson Agholor joining the team as a part of a major haul of free-agent signings, Cam’s redemption season in New England will receive a major boost.
In the last two days, Cam Newton got:
— TE Jonnu Smith
— TE Hunter Henry
— WR Nelson Agholor
— WR Kendrick Bourne

Cam Newton was at one point in time rated the No.1 player in the league by his own peers. He won an MVP in 2015 in the midst of the primes of Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady. He will have another shot to silence his critics in 2021. Hopefully, Cam’s new motivation scheme will help him succeed and reach the heights we’ve all grown to expect.
” ‘ ℂ !!”
I got sick of hearing about how Cam Newton cannot complete a pass. It’s become accepted as true. It’s not! Look:https://t.co/YanHteqG0D
