Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is satisfied he made his point to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell about not being treated fairly in the pocket.
“It was a great discussion, great talk,” Newton Vontae Davis Authentic Womens Jersey said Wednesday, a day after he talked to Goodell by phone. “I got my point across. He got his point across. That’s it.”
Newton complained after Sunday’s 30-20 victory over Arizona that he wasn’t getting the same treatment as other quarterbacks regarding late hits in the pocket.
“I’m a professional athlete. What professional athlete don’t have a gun? I have a wife and I have a son at home. My job is to protect them at all costs, and my job is to protect myself as well even though I know I have security here, but I have to protect myself as well.”
Asked if he believes if everybody in the Eagles Winston Guy Authentic Womens Jersey locker room and around the league carries a gun, he said, “I do. Yes, I do.”
The 25-year-old acknowledged that he was at the Eagles’ NovaCare facility Tuesday morning prior to the arrest, but told ESPN that he made a stop before heading home over the Walt Whitman — to pick up his gun. He would not reveal where.
Eagles wide receiver Josh Huff will be available to play Sunday against the Giants despite his arrest Tuesday, coach Doug Pederson said.
Huff confirmed that the gun is licensed in Texas, and acknowledged that he wasn’t as familiar with the New Jersey laws as he should have been. He said that he felt his life has been threatened in the past, which is why he chooses to carry a gun.
“I’m from Houston. You can’t trust a lot of people in Zach Kerr Authentic Womens Jersey Houston,” he said. “There’s always somebody out to get you. You’ve got to protect yourself. Even when I’m back in Houston, I always have a gun on me, because there’s been several instances in Houston where I’ve lost a friend to gun violence, and he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, so why would I let that happen to me?”
Coach Doug Pederson said that there would not be any immediate discipline as a result of the arrest, and that the plan as of now is for Huff to play Sunday at the New York Giants.
