Cam Newton is in the middle of a self-proclaimed mid-life crisis 0. .

Showing up to the Panthers training camp press conference, Cam Newton was sporting a bleached beard and interesting straw hat.

When asked about his appearance, Newton replied, “We’re both at a mid-life crisis (Thomas Davis). He says I’m too old to be blonding my beard, and I say he’s too old to be sporting a mohawk.”

We’ve seen Cam Newton wear stranger things, but he considers himself a fashion icon.

Looks like straw hats are actually a favorite of Newton’s:

As hilarious as his appearance is, he’s ready to put in some hard work this year at camp.

According to the Charlotte Observer, Jerry Richardson wants Newton to improve his accuracy the shorter throws that defenses often give up.

“As Mr. Richardson says, the layups. The gimme throws,” Newton said. “I always ask for brutal honesty from the superior forces that are in my life, from coach (Ron) Rivera to Mr. Richardson to Mr. (Dave) Gettleman and from my father. You hear it often: Yeah, you can throw the comebacks and the digs. But what about the checkdowns and slants and just getting back to the small nuances of the game? That makes big differences.”

Newton has been busy this off-season recording a Nickelodeon show (video below) called “All In with Cam Newton.” He’s ready to get back to the business of football saying, “Knowing I could have all my focus on Spartanburg and the Carolina Panthers … I’ve been counting the days just to get back with the guys.”
