Carolina Panthers Quarterback Cam Newton is single and ready to mingle. The reigning Rookie of the Year was asked if he has a girlfriend: “I wish I did,” the Carolina Panthers quarterback said during a recent interview with USA TODAY Sports. “I’m looking for one.

About an hour into Wednesday's practice, Panthers coach Ron Rivera called his players together near midfield and ripped into them for the next several minutes - sending a message loud enough that everyone nearby could hear.
