Newton expected to work out in front of media next month

SAN DIEGO -- Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton is expected to hold a workout in front of the media Feb. 10.

Newton has been working with quarterbacks coach George Whitfield Jr. in San Diego leading up to the NFL Scouting Combine in late February. Whitfield worked with Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger during his four-game suspension.

Newton, who is skipping his senior year to enter the NFL draft, led Auburn to the BCS national championship during his lone season with the Tigers.

Newton won the Heisman and Maxwell player of the year awards, along with the Davey O'Brien and Manning awards as the top quarterback.
