It looks like Cam Newton will be going from $100,000 man to Hard Knocks… the Carolina Panthers are the lead candidate to be featured on the new season of Hard Knocks. The HBO original series chronicles an NFL team’s training camp and upcoming season preparations. Panthers center Ryan Kalil tweeted, “Reliable source telling me possible reality sports doc TV series coming to NC after today’s media presence covering Panther POTA’s.”
This season is especially competitive because of the NFL lockout. Despite other teams’ interest, including the Detroit Lions and Denver Broncos, the Panthers are said to be the front runner because of first overall draft pick Newton. Already proclaiming himself as an entertainer and icon, Newton is no stranger to controversy, after reports surfaced that Newton accepted money to play college football at Auburn.
