Cam Newton is Playing Water Polo This Off-Season, Is Clearly the Most Intimidating Player the Sport Has Ever Seen

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water . . .

Cam Newton Playing Water Polo

It's never enough, is it Cam? You won the 2015 NFL MVP Award, guided the Carolina Panthers to their first Super Bowl appearance since 2003, and were arguably the best quarterback in the league. But you needed more, huh? You had to strap on a different kind of helmet, dive into the water and dominate a bunch of water polo players who never expected a 6-foot-5, 245-pound behemoth with a cannon for an arm to enter their liquid arena.

All jokes aside, Newton would be one of the most terrifying water polo players in history if he suddenly decided to change career paths. The Panthers quarterback took some time this off-season to join Team USA's water polo team for a recent practice; and the above picture, showing off Cam's ridiculous muscles, has gone viral. Newton posted the same photo on his Instagram, with the caption: "Let's just say you wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of this throw."

Let's hope that whoever caught this bullet from Newton still has hands left to participate in the upcoming Summer Olympics in August.
