CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- While Cam Newton says he's a big Tim Tebow fan, he downplayed the reunion on Sunday night with his former college teammate.
Newton said his focus this week isn't on renewing old friendships but rather on continuing to build momentum on offense when the Panthers (No. 20 in the AP Pro32) visit the New York Jets in what'll certainly be his last significant playing time of the preseason.
Carolina's starters won't play much in the preseason finale at Pittsburgh on Thursday.
Newton said he learned a lot from Tebow during his two seasons at Florida, but the high-profile NFL quarterbacks haven't kept in contact since Newton left the program in 2009. Newton was a redshirt freshman in 2008 when Tebow led Florida to its second national championship in three seasons.
Newton transferred to Blinn College while Tebow finished his college career with the Gators.
"There's a lot that I've learned from Tim and his professionalism," Newt...

The New York Jets are the only team in the NFL not to score a touchdown this preseason. There are several reasons why and the Jets are full of excuses. It was the right tackles fault, new coordinator, injuries, you name it they have an excuse for it.
The bottom line is this, the Jets do not have any talent on offense.

Jebus wants this mic to be liveMy friend and occasional FTT writer Tracer Bullet posted about the NFL Network's Tim Tebow documentary, with the pretty by-the-book reaction of how irritating this whole thing is. My reaction was as follows:Like all men having to wear hats at all times did for us, the Tebow Phenomenon is going to comfort future generations that they are much, much...
The NFC South is arguably one of the tougher divisions in the NFL for 2012. This division is also one of the toughest to predict.New Orleans and Atlanta have dominated this division the last several years, but now the Panthers could be back in championship form thanks to their quarterback, Cam Newton, who shattered many rookie quarterback records last year.Week 2 in the NFL...
New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow will not play in the team's exhibition finale at the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday. ESPN.com reported Saturday that Jets coach Rex Ryan does not play starters in the final games of the preseason, meaning Mark Sanchez will not play, either. That leaves Greg McElroy and Matt Simms at quarterback against the Eagles. The Jets will...
As the New York Jets try to find a solution to its offensive woes, backup quarterback Tim Tebow is confident Gang Green can sort out these issues in time for the regular season.
With Tim Tebow and company gearing up for Sunday night's preseason contest against the Carolina Panthers, the Jets' backup signal-caller is looking to provide a spark to a struggling offense.
The New York Jets are still searching for the end zone.
Mark Sanchez can't get them there, and neither can Tim Tebow.
After three preseason games, the Jets' offensive ineptitude has become a punch line - especially since they're the first team in 35 years to go this long without a touchdown. Sure, it's still only the preseason and the Jets insist they're not...
In his third season as head coach of the New York Jets, Rex Ryan saw his team take a step back, failing to reach the playoffs for the first time during his tenure. How did the Jets respond during the offseason? They added one of the most polarizing figures in the NFL today: Tim Tebow. Just having Tebow on the sidelines is reason enough for fans to show up on most Sundays, but New...
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Mark Sanchez looked pretty good for nearly three quarters. He just couldn't get the New York Jets into the end zone -- again.
Tim Tebow had the play of the game, but also couldn't get that elusive preseason touchdown for the Jets.
Tebow got the fans fired up with a dazzling 20-yard run in the fourth quarter, but threw an interception three...
Catch any of the Jets-Panthers game last night? Jets looked good right? This time is becoming more and more of a laughing stock with every passing week. Rex Ryan and Tony Sparano keep telling fans that things are fine, that they’re waiting until the regular season to “unleash” their offense. The media is quickly becoming very critical and so are fans. They’re sick of Tebow...
Only two games on the card Sunday night but they both involved interesting storylines.Peyton Manning looked sharp in his 3rd preseason game with the Broncos.Also just as interesting, but perhaps for different reasons, Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow continued to struggle in their 3rd preseason outing with the Jets. Peyton and his Horses look ready for Week 1, while Mark and Timmy have...
