Say what you want about Cam Newton’s on-field celebrations. But it’s tough to hate the NFL MVP after seeing what he did in Baltimore over the weekend.
Newton was spotted handing out food to homeless people in Baltimore before the team’s preseason opener against the Ravens. As the Panthers walked out of Sullivan’s Steakhouse, Newton was pictured offering food to a homeless man at a nearby bus stop.
“They were walking in a group and he slid over, gave the guy the bag and kept moving,” Candace Gregory, who witnessed the act of kindness, told ESPN’s David Newton. “It was a quick, smooth motion, like he was handing the ball off to a running back.”

This was an awesome gesture from Newton, but teammate Joe Webb says it’s par for the course for the apparently generous star.
“It’s like second nature for him,” Webb told ESPN’s David Newton. “It’s no surprise that he did it. A lot of people say, ‘What are you doing when people aren’t looking?’ It speaks volumes that he’s a great person.”
So while you might not care for Cam Newton’s flamboyant celebrations or dabbing, it’s hard to say he’s a bad guy.
