Cam Newton Didn't Want To Put A Lot Of Pressure On His Kid, So He Named Him Chosen

Cam Newton recently became a father, and revealed that his son’s name is Chosen. Why that name? In part, because Newton didn’t want his kid to have to live with the pressure of being named Cam Newton Jr.

Newton explained his decision to name the kid Chosen during his press conference today (at about the five-minute mark of this video):

I wanted something that would be masculine, but unique. I’m not a big fan of juniors, and every person that I’ve had this conversation with, I say, “I didn’t want him to have the pressure of being a junior,” and then they reply with, “What the hell do you think Chosen is gonna bring?”


Your friends make a valid point, Cam.
