Cam Newton Suspended? Nope

Cam Newton Has Not Been Suspended – Will Play Against Georgia on Saturday

Although the is Internet buzzing with reports of Cam Newton’s imminent suspension, those reports that have turned out to be false.

The rumor that the Auburn Tigers’ starting quarterback would be suspended within a few hours due to an NCAA investigation into a pay-for-play clause that is supposedly attached to Newton’s contract is believed to have stemmed from a misunderstood comment made by Ian Fitzsimmons during a radio broadcast.

After listening to Fitzsimmons a blogger erroneously tweeted a message that read, “ESPN Dallas’ Ian Fitzsimmons is reporting that within 3-4 hours the NCAA is going to suspend Cam Newton,” and the story soon spread across cyberspace.

Auburn Tigers’ coach, Gene Chizik, however quickly shot down those reports and gave this statement to reporters, “I want to get this off the table upfront – Cameron Newton will be playing Saturday against the Georgia Bulldogs. We’ve prepared and focused like any other week. Nothing has changed.”

Apparently the NCAA, the SEC Conference and Auburn has been aware of this information since September. This stems from when Newton was being recruited out of junior college. A man representing Newton was looking for a six-figure sum to lure Newton to a university.

Former Mississippi State player John Bond turned this information over after the man representing Newton called him asking for $180,000. Bond said he was told that other universities had already offered 200,000.

The man representing Newton is former college player Kenny Rogers. Rogers operates a service out of Chicago that runs camps and matches high school players with colleges.
