Cam Newton, of all people, calls Josh Norman 'person that thrives on attention'

Cam Newton, of all people, calls Josh Norman 'person that thrives on attention'

Cam Newton and Josh Norman were rivals even as teammates in Carolina. So with the Panthers set to face the Redskins on Monday Night Football, Newton got a lot of questions about Norman at his Wednesday press availability.

The Charlotte Observer made a video compilation of the quarterback's comments about Norman

In whole, Newton had a lot of praise for his former teammate. 

“Josh is a person that challenged me daily because of that competitive mentality," Newton said. "His competitive nature, that’s his edge ... And Josh needs that. I realize that with me being around him for the four years that he was here, he needs somebody to challenge him so he can get in a groove.

"As far as respect, I respect Josh. Our relationship goes way beyond the game of football."

All of that seems like an accurate description of the cornerback Redskins fans have come to know. But one of Newton's observations could just as easily apply to himself. 

"For people who don’t really know Josh, I think he’s a person that thrives on attention."

Oh really, Cam?

The Vikings will be without Adam Thielen against the Redskins in Week 7

The Vikings will be without Adam Thielen against the Redskins in Week 7

When Kirk Cousins faces the Redskins on Thursday for the first time since leaving the franchise in 2018, the quarterback will be without arguably his favorite wide receiver.

Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen will miss Thursday's contest vs. Washington with a hamstring injury. ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news.

Thielen injured his hamstring crashing into a barricade after hauling in a touchdown in the Vikings' 42-30 victory over the Lions on Sunday. The injury isn't expected to be serious, and Thielen might have been able to play this week had the Vikings not been playing on Thursday night. Minnesota expects him to return to action next week.

The wide receiver is a considerable loss to the Minnesota offense, as only Stefon Diggs has more receiving yards for Vikings this season than Thielen. His six receiving touchdowns lead the team, too.

The Vikings have won four straight games, and even with Thielen's injury, are still more than a two-touchdown favorite over the 1-6 Redskins.

Check out Josh Norman's house featuring a personal barbershop, vibrating bed, and more

Redskins cornerback Josh Norman signed a five-year, $75 million contract with the Redskins in 2016, at the time making him the highest-paid cornerback in NFL history. Well, No. 24 has definitely put some of that money to good use.

On the latest episode of Bleacher Report's 'Ditch the Playbook,' Norman took Adam Lefkoe on a tour of his Leesburg mansion. As you can expect, Norman had an array of things that not many homeowners have.

A notably big Batman fan, Norman's driveway has his customized 'JNo24' logo engraved, mimicking the style of the superhero's logo. He also has a lifesize painting of the superhero on his wall.

Norman takes Lefkoe through the entirety of his house, which features a personal barbershop, a home theater, a giraffe-skin rug, a real sword and Captain America shield, among others.

The unusualness of items that Norman owns led Lefkoe to ask the cornerback a question everyone has been itching to know.

"Do people in the NFL think you're weird?" Lefkoe asked.

"Yeah," Norman said. "They thinkin', like, 'Something's wrong with this guy. I know he's interesting, he's just a little off.'"

One of the last stops in the house is Norman's bedroom, where he sleeps on a massage-vibrating bed. Norman lets Lefkoe try it out, but Lefkoe admitted he didn't "feel comfortable."

If MTV Cribs ever makes a comeback, Josh Norman's house should be one of the show's first stops.
