Cam Newton is feeling the 'just a business' bluntness of the NFL as his Panthers career comes to an imminent close. Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Cam Newton continues to relay his feelings regarding his imminent departure from the Carolina Panthers by way of Instagram.

In his latest dispatch, the 30-year-old quarterback made note of how the NFL at its essence is simply a business and there’s no reason to have hurt feelings over how things play out.

In his patented, difficult-to-read font play, Newton insisted he has no hard feelings over the unceremonious manner in which his tenure with the Panthers is coming to an end.

Newton also shared footage of himself continuing his rehabilitation after undergoing successful surgery to repair a Lisfranc injury on his left foot.

While Newton may indeed no longer harbor any misgivings over the Panthers’ decision to move on from him at this point, that did not appear to be the case earlier in the week.

Newton took issue with how the Panthers framed the narrative, and indicated as much while commenting on a social media post shared by the Panthers about the ongoing situation.

“Stop with the word play!!” Newton wrote. ” … You forced me into this!!”

The latest reports surrounding Newton’s uncertain future is that the quarterback is having difficulty finding interested trade partners after the Panthers granted him permission to seek a deal.

The fact that the Panthers have already signed Newton’s replacement in Teddy Bridgewater has compromised their position in seeking a deal to their liking. Newton’s $21.1 million cap hit for the 2020 season while coming off yet another serious injury only further complicates matters.

It remains to be seen what Newton’s future holds, but if the former MVP is to be taken at his word, it stands to reason that he understands his current situation is nothing more than business as usual in the frequently cold-hearted, cutthroat NFL world.
