CHARLOTTE, N.C. — According to Ed Werder of ESPN, Commissioner Roger Goodell will look into the Panthers’ concerns regarding the hits on Cam Newton.
In a series of tweets, Werder stated Ron Rivera spoke directly to Goodell about Newton’s safety.
Werder went on to quote sources saying, “Goodell has vowed league review of the Newton Situation, also promised he would speak to the 2015 MVP directly about the issues.”
Sources also indicate that General Manager Dave Gettleman spoke with the league office on Monday.
The communication with the league comes following Carolina’s 30-20 win over the Arizona Cardinals, in which Newton received several questionable hits which did not draw flags.
After and initial review of the game, the NFl has admitted that a low hit on Newton by Calais Campbell was missed.
Cam Newton voiced his frustration with the lack of calls, for illegal hits against him, in the press conference after the game.
