Cam Newton was just blessed with a baby boy. His son was born on Christmas Eve and, while he didn’t announce it until yesterday, he’s clearly ecstatic about it.

Earlier today, the Panthers quarterback was asked about his new baby during a media session with reporters, and he joked that his son is already following in his footsteps.

“I took him out for a jog yesterday,” he said. “He was running alongside me. He has a couple scholarship offers already on the table…He can dunk, too.”

LOL. Good one, Cam. But the way college coaches think today, we actually wouldn’t be all that surprised if you were being serious.
