Cam Newton originally had no idea that Luke Kuechly played linebacker

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

When Cam Newton met Luke Kuechly, his first thought was probably the exact opposite of what you may think. No, Newton didn't think that Kuechly had great speed, or great coverage abilities. Instead, he actually thought the Carolina Panthers' star linebacker played a completely different position.

Via David Newton of ESPN:

Well, for what it's worth, we have seen Kuechly make some incredible catches this year, but they've been as a linebacker and resulted in his defense turning the ball back over to Carolina's offense.
