(FOX Sports) - Cam Newton didn't play well in Carolina's Super Bowl 50 loss to the Denver Broncos, so it wasn't a surprise when he offered one-word answers to the media before getting up and walking off early.
Most figured it was just Newton in a bad mood.
But now we know the real reason why Cam bailed: He heard Denver's Chris Harris explain close by that their gameplan was to make Carolina prove it could throw the football (which obviously the Panthers did not do well on Sunday).
Here's what Harris said: "Load the box, force y'all to throw the ball. Can you throw the football? That was the gameplan."
Now watch this video of Cam listening to Harris' words before walking off. Click here for more from FOX Sports.
THIS is why Cam walked out (listen to what's being said in the background). pic.twitter.com/6LdLFwv8tj— Brian (@bmweezy13) February 8, 2016
