We haven't heard much from Cam Newton after he was released from the New England Patriots at the end of August, but it sounds like the veteran quarterback will be breaking his silence later this week.

In an Instagram video posted to his account Thursday afternoon, Newton said "On this week's Funky Friday, I have a lot of things that I need to get off my chest. This is not a retirement speech. And I have a lot of football left in me."

Will Newton react to his departure from the Patriots? Will he talk about his plans for the upcoming 2021 NFL season? We'll see on Friday. 

The former league MVP has not yet signed with a new team. There was speculation that the Dallas Cowboys would be a good fit for Newton, but head coach Mike McCarthy pretty much closed that door (at least for now) with comments made last week.

The Patriots have moved forward with rookie quarterback Mac Jones, who will make his regular season debut Sunday afternoon against the rival Miami Dolphins at Gillette Stadium.
