The Miami Dolphins will hold a private workout with Auburn quarterback Cam Newton this weekend, a source with knowledge of the situation said Wednesday.
The Carolina Panthers, who pick first, also have dined with Newton, NFL Network insider Michael Lombardi reported two weeks ago.
The Dolphins own the 15th pick, but they might be in the market for a quarterback. Chad Henne has endured two up-and-down seasons as Miami's starter, and Tyler Thigpen and Tom Brandstater are the other quarterbacks currently listed on the roster. Also, veteran Chad Pennington has said he will come back for the 2011 season despite having his fourth shoulder surgery.
Over the next few weeks, Newton also has workouts or interviews scheduled with the Denver Broncos (No. 2 pick), Cincinnati Bengals (No. 4), Cleveland Browns (No. 6), Tennessee Titans (No. 8), Washington Redskins (No. 10) and Minnesota Vikings (No. 12).
