A healthy Cam Newton wants to improve his accuracy heading into his fifth season with the Carolina Panthers.The No. 1 overall draft pick in 2011 said he's looking to complete about 65 to 70 percent of his passes in 2015, which is a lofty goal for a quarterback who has never completed better than 61.7 percent of his passes in a season and only 59.5 percent for his career.
''It's not just like playing a game of Madden,'' Newton said Wednesday following practice. ''When you have live bullets flying out there and you don't wholesale cam newton jerseys china have a receiver open, you have to find a completion. That's something I'm maturing into, morphing into as a player - that when all hell breaks loose, no matter what the situation is at hand, I have to find a way to keep the bus going forward.''
He'll have to move that bus without co-pilot Kelvin Benjamin.
The Panthers lost their No. 1 wide receiver in training camp to a torn ACL, leaving journeyman Ted Ginn Jr. and the unheralded Philly Brown as the team's starters heading into Jacksonville on Sunday.
Newton does have one of the game's most productive tight ends in 1,000-yard receiver Greg Olsen and a solid group of running backs that excel catching cheap cam newton t-shirt the ball out of the backfield, including Jonathan Stewart and Mike Tolbert.
Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Newton has done a better job this offseason of getting the ball out quicker and making faster - and better - decisions.
''That comes from getting familiarity within the system,'' Rivera said cheap cam newton jerseys online of Newton, who is entering his fifth year working with offensive coordinator Mike Shula.
It also helps that Newton is as healthy as he's ever been since joining cheap carolina panthers cam newton jerseys the NFL.
He missed last year's season opener at Tampa Bay with fractured ribs, snapping a string of 48 straight starts. He was also recovering from offseason ankle surgery at the time, a recovery process that cheap cam newton caps Newton would later acknowledge took longer than he initially anticipated.
As if that wasn't enough, Newton would fracture two bones in his lower back last December when another car collided with his truck, sending his vehicle flipping over before coming to rest on its hood on a highway overpass cheap cam newton socks just blocks from the team's stadium.
