Cam Newton had his talk with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell yesterday and was able to elaborate some in his weekly Wednesday presser.
"It was a great conversation. I got my point across. He got his point across. But we'll see Sunday and moving forward."- Cam on talk with Goodell.
"In the pocket, that's all I'm asking for. Just to get the calls everyone else gets."- Newton
Newton also stated he understands he runs more than other quarterback in the league and that he will protect himself as a runner. In Cam's defense, he's never complained about hits as a runner. He's admitted multiple times that a lot of the shots he has taken are on himself.

Rivera also commented on his conversation with Goodell.
"The good thing is he was a willing listener," said Rivera.
