Cam Newton has not had a great year dealing with the local media in Carolina.
The former Auburn star had another issue Wednesday afternoon when he abruptly walked out on a press conference before the Panthers’ matchup with Tampa Bay on Sunday.
Newton appeared to get frustrated toward the end of a long question about chunk plays and asked for another question. After a short lull, Newton bolted.

Newton also received criticism for how he handled the media after the Panthers lost Super Bowl 50 to the Denver Broncos.
Carolina kicks off vs the Buccaneers at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.
