Cam Newton, Jimmy Clausen Go Whitewater Rafting [9 Photos]

It’s pretty rare to see a #1 NFL draft pick and franchise QB whitewater rafting, but that’s exactly what Cam Newton and his Carolina Panthers teammates were up to this week in Charlotte at the U.S. National Whitewater Center. Who are we to judge how the Franchise spends his off time? All we can say is that Jimmy Clausen is riding in the front of a raft while Newton has protection from the new guy, Jeremy Shockey.

Imagine that, throwing Clausen off a raft. Anyone surprised?

The bigger surprise here is that Cam Newton got this close to a possible career ending injury without signing a professional contract. Better choice would be Cam running the video camera on the shore. Let’s be careful, boys. Busted Coverage has those Newton BCS Championship pants riding on the legs of this guy.

He has a hall of fame career and we retire from this gig early.
