CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Quarterback Cam Newton found a home on the field with the Carolina Panthers last fall, and now he's found a home off of it as well.
Newton recently closed on a $1.6 million uptown condo in The Trust building, sources tell NewsChannel 36. The news was first reported last Friday by the Charlotte Business Journal.
The condo includes three bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. Among the benefits of the building is a membership to the Charlotte Athletic Club. The home was sold fully furnished and the complex includes a rooftop pool.
The Panthers quarterback agreed to a four-year, $22 million deal in July of 2011 and went on to become to the NFL's Rookie of the Year during Carolina's 6-10 season.
Newton threw for 21 touchdowns and set an NFL record with 14 rushing scoes by a quarterback.
The Auburn University product recently annouced the Cam Newton foundation earlier this month that will help kids across the Carolinas.
