Newton: Jerry knows how to find me

Auburn's Cam Newton stopped by Fort Worth on Monday to pick up his Davey O'Brien Award recognizing the nation's top quarterback. Our local ABC affiliate (Channel 8) asked Newton about his interest in being drafted by the Dallas Cowboys.

"Jerry Jones, man he knows how to get hold of me, let's just say that," said Newton. "Just as a whole, my opportunity right now, I’m just going to continue to work hard on trying to become the best player I can be. Whatever team gets me, it's going to be an honor in itself to be picked up and it's just going to be a dream come true."

Something tells me that Jones indeed could figure out how to reach young Newton in a pinch. And at least one local columnist and "Around The Horn" panelist believes the Cowboys should keep their options open (pay wall alert) with the former Auburn star.

On a somber note, Newton told reporters that his "heart is going out to Toomer's Corner and the Toomer's trees" that were recently poisoned by an Alabama fan.
