According to our old pal Pete Prisco of CBS Sports, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton acted “standoffish” and like a “diva” at the Pro Bowl last season. Newton apparently “dissed” Ravens future hall of famer Ray Lewis.
“Who the hell did he think they were?” said one player. “The only people around are families. He knew that. Yet he big-timed the guy by saying ‘now’s not the time.'”
That player said Newton did the unthinkable and even dissed Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.
“That’s the godfather there,” one player said. “Can you believe he did that?”
Prisco says that Ravens PR guy Kevin Byrne denied the report, however “a handful of league sources” confirmed the story.
