Let the good times keep on rolling in Carolina.
Today, the Pro Football Writers of America announced that Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is the 2015 NFL MVP. Along with winning this prestigious honor, the committee awarded him the 2015 Offensive Player Of The Year award. “Dab” Newton made a major jump to superstardom in his 5th season out of Auburn University, as the former Heisman winner accounted for over 4,400 passing yards and 45 touchdowns while leading his Panthers to the #1 seed in the NFC and best record in the NFL at 15-1.

Newton’s numbers have improved drastically from previous seasons. His 35 passing touchdowns are 11 more than his previous career high, and his passer rating (99.4) and rushing yardage (600) shattered his own previous marks, and the freshly-named MVP has his Panthers just one win from returning to the Super Bowl for the first time since 2003.
“It is only fitting and right that Cam Newton wins the NFL’s MVP this season. He was dominant on the field and off it. His generosity in the community as well as his superstar performance with the Carolina Panthers evidenced how someone could be a fierce competitor on game day while having fun all along the way. Of course, his swag and love for Hip Hop is also something that we are proud,” says L. Londell McMillan, prominent Attorney and Owner of The Source Magazine.
