Cam Newton enjoys his time at White House Correspondents' Dinner

Cam Newton was among six NFL players who attended the White House Correspondents’ Dinner this weekend.

It was the first time at the dinner for the Carolina Panthers quarterback. A source close to Newton said he enjoyed his time and described it as a “different experience.”


Newton has been jumping from Charlotte for offseason team activities to Auburn where he’s working on finishing his sociology degree.

Other NFL players at the dinner were Richard Sherman, Tony Romo, Adrian Peterson, Andrew Luck and Kirk Cousins.

President Barack Obama joked about Sherman’s famous post-game interview with Erin Andrews following the NFC Championship Game.

“Sometimes I do feel disrespected by you reporters. But that’s OK,” Obama said. “Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is here tonight. And he gave me some great tips on how to handle it. Jake Tapper, don’t you ever talk about me like that! I’m the best president in the game! What do you think, Richard? Was that good? A little more feeling next time?”

I expect a big year out of Cam now that the distraction of Steve Smith is out of the picture.
