SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - Cam Newton says he has spoken to Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel about coping with the pressures of being a Heisman Trophy winning quarterback who lives life in the limelight
The Panthers quarterback said Tuesday that he and Manziel have talked a few times this offseason, but Newton wouldn't discuss the specifics of the conversation. He says that's something personal between him and Manziel.
Newton says Manziel "has to go through these types of situations to know how to handle them in the future. When somebody comes up to you and asks for your autograph, you don't know if they're going to do it for good or bad" purposes.
Like Manziel, Newton was under media scrutiny while at Auburn during an NCAA investigation into a pay-for-play allegations.
