Former New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton recently made headlines for his comments on a number of different subjects.

On The Pivot Podcast, Newton talked about his time in New England and his return to Carolina, describing them as "fu**ed" up situations.

Newton said:

"I put myself in another f--- up situation. I was signed on Thursday, I played on Sunday. At what point did you think you was gonna be successful? That next week, I started. That's still up under 10 days of you being on the team, and you're still trying to learn an offense. So before I sit up here and allow the narrative to be made that Cam ain't got it no more, Cam is taking full responsibility and saying that Cam put himself in a f--- up situation."

Newton went on to claim that he considered himself more valuable than legendary quarterbacks like Tom Brady and Peyton Manning in certain aspects of the game.

"I saw myself more valuable than a Tom Brady, I saw myself more valuable than an Aaron Rodgers, than a Peyton Manning. Because I can go into their community, but they can never go to my community."
