Cam Newton was without a job for several months. He eventually signed with the Carolina Panthers on a one-year contract, where he could earn up to $10 million.
Since joining the Panthers, the team has gone 0-4 in his starts. Newton is expected to start on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
However, Emmanuel Acho, who previously played in the league, appeared on FS1’s Speak For Yourself and said that Newton needs to retire.
“Either Cam Newton has to retire or I have to retire because I refuse to keep doing this, I can’t take it,” Acho said. “We both have a job to do, and I’m trying to do mine well, but I can’t do mine well and sleep well at night based on how you playing.
“Cam, I don’t wanna have to come on this show and talk about how you have the worst completion percentage we’ve seen since 2004. I don’t wanna come on this show and talk about the fact that Cam Newton can spike the ball on every play and have a higher passer rating. I don’t want to come on this show and talk bad about Cam Newton.”
Acho played four seasons in the NFL. He began his career with the Cleveland Browns in 2012, before spending three more seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles from 2013 through 2015.
The 32-year-old Newton, who was once the NFL MVP in 2015, has appeared in five games with the Panthers. He made the aforementioned four starts.
Newton has gone 62 of 113 for 623 yards. He has had four touchdown passes and four interceptions.
