Panthers excited for Cam's Year 2 under Turner

SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- Cam Newton spent the first eight years of his NFL career calling himself "Superman'' and trying to emulate the superhero on the field, but now the Carolina Panthers quarterback seems content with being Clark Kent.

The 2015 NFL MVP told NBC Sports on Sunday he doesn't have to be "Superman'' anymore for the offense to succeed, understanding he has more dynamic weapons around him to make plays.

Offensive coordinator Norv Turner appreciates Newton saying that, but doesn't sound totally convinced the player who celebrates touchdowns by pretending to spread his jersey to reveal an "S'' on his chest has completely put away the red cape.
