Newton is hoping to inch closer to regaining the MVP form he had in 2015, as he called the 2016 season "unacceptable." He went on to say that the fans are owed more.
As for doing it for the fans, the Panthers signal-caller reportedly promised a fan over the weekend that he will make her happy come Week 1 when the Panthers face the San Francisco 49ers on the road.
