Cam Newton says he's on a "rapid" pace to recover from ankle surgery.
Feels like we've heard all of this before. To quote a little Shakespeare, "Methinks thou doth protest too much," Cam. The procedure Newton underwent last month to tighten the ligaments in his ankle needs a decent recovery time. While we admire his desire to get back on the field, Newton shouldn't be rushing anything right now. Whether he recovers at a "rapid pace" or not, he'll still be ready once training camp opens, so why not just take it easy? No one is taking your job away, cam. Rest easy now and be healthy for the season.ANALYST: Howard Bender
