A photograph of Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton practicing with the U.S. Olympic water polo team garnered attention Monday night. Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller responded Wednesday with a light-hearted jab.
The Broncos’ Miller forced two Newton fumbles in the Super Bowl, including one in the fourth quarter to set up a game-sealing touchdown in the final minutes.
It was only the second meeting between the players taken with the first two picks of the 2011 NFL Draft. Newton played just one season at Auburn and never faced Miller, who played for Texas A&M from 2007-10 when the Aggies were still in the Big 12.
