NFL Players are returning to work Friday morning. One of the first to show up at his team’s facility was Jimmy Clausen in Carolina.
Sam Wyche of NFL.com reports that the Panthers had a voluntarily team meeting at 8:45 a.m. Clausen arrived at the team’s facility at 7:25.
Wyche asked Clausen the obvious question: what does he think of the Cam Newton selection?
"They've got to do what they got to do," Clausen said.
It will be interesting to see how Clausen and Newton jive when the two start working out and practicing together. As Joe Fortenbaugh of National Football Post points out, Clausen currently wears number 2 -- Newton's number at Auburn. Generally, rookies purchase their numbers from veterans. But how would it look for Clausen to sell to the man brought in to replace him so soon?
