Cam Newton shares inspirational message on Instagram

Cam Newton didn't have much to say in his post-game press conference on Sunday following the Panthers' 41-38 loss to New Orleans, but the quarterback took to social media on Monday afternoon to post an inspirational message in response to the early-season struggles and criticism he's received.

Newton posted the following message on Instagram: "A wise man once said, it won't be easy...But it'll damn sure be worth it." Newton also added the hashtags #ImUpForTheChallenge and #KeepPounding.

Newton, in case you missed it, walked off less than two minutes into his post-game press conference following the Saints game, revoking memories of Super Bowl 50's loss to the Broncos.

He's unlikely to speak with the media this week during the Panthers' bye, but is scheduled to hold his pre-game press conference next Wednesday heading into the Cardinals game.
