Fans wondered what would be next for Newton. Could the veteran sign with the Denver Broncos of Dallas Cowboys among other possibilities? But others took the comedy route and said Newton was going to be playing quarterback for Bishop Sycamore.
Bishop Sycamore is the alleged high school that was thrust into a nationally televised football game on ESPN on Sunday against one of the top teams in the nation in IMG Academy after suiting up and playing Friday. Bishop Sycamore was trounced and later reporting revealed the school duped a marketing agency into putting the school on television.
Bishop Sycamore claimed to have top football recruits despite having a shady website and bowing out of a conference call with ESPN days before their Sunday game. Complex reported most of the players on the roster were junior college dropouts who weren’t even high school age.
It’s obviously unlikely Newton is going back to school to continue his play, but the joke was there and many Twitter users acknowledged it.
