Cam Newton issues apology video for comment to female reporter


CHARLOTTE - Cam Newton said he is sorry.

The Carolina Panthers quarterback released a 1 minute, 40 second video on his Facebook page Thursday where he apologized "to the journalists, moms, super moms, daughters, sisters, all the women around the world I sincerely apologize."

On Wednesday, the Carolina Panthers had their weekly news conference ahead of Sunday's matchup. Newton responded to a beat reporter's question about routes by saying "It's funny to hear a female talk about routes," he said, chuckling.

The reporter who he was responding to, Jourdan Rodrigue, is the Panthers beat writer for the Charlotte Observer.
