Cam Newton on being compared to Usain Bolt (video)

Cam Newton cracked a smile Wednesday when a reporter asked, “a lot of people in the Caribbean are saying that you are to the NFL what Usain Bolt is to the Olympics, how do you feel about that?”

“He’s a cool guy, real cool, internationally cool,” Newton responded, raising his eyebrows. “I’m just locally cool. Usain, he is Jamaica.”

Newton, who will lead the Carolina Panthers against the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50 on Sunday, met Bolt at last year’s Super Bowl. Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was also there for a group Gatorade photo with superstars across several sports.
