SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) Panthers cornerback Josh Norman says he has nothing but ''mad respect'' for Cam Newton and there are no hard feelings between he and the star quarterback following a training camp scuffle earlier this week.
Norman even posted a selfie of himself and Newton on his Twitter account Tuesday night after the team watched the latest ''Mission Impossible'' movie together.
Norman, speaking for the first time since Monday's scuffle, says it's something that happens ''when you're competitive and have that fire within you (and) both of you want to win so bad.''
The fourth-year cornerback says, ''We're teammates and brothers.''
Norman says there's no other quarterback he would want to be on the same team with, adding that with Newton at the helm the Panthers ''can do a lot of special things.''
