Free-agent QB Cam Newton (Panthers) has been the focus of an ongoing recruiting effort by Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette to join the Jaguars this offseason. Fournette mentioned on social media last month he wanted the team to sign Newton and made another push for it during an appearance on ESPN’s First Take on Thursday, April 16.
‘Cam went to the Super Bowl. He’s a great guy. I’ve been knowing Cam for a minute now. And like I told some people that talked to me, it’s no disrespect to (Gardner Minshew). I’m just trying to get in the best position as a team as we can (to) win. That’s all that was about. Just friendly competition ’cause that brings out the best in people,’ Fournette said.ESPN.com - Michael DiRocco
