Clausen Not Ready to Give His Number to Newton

Jimmy Clausen isn’t going to be under center much in 2011 if Cam Newton gets his way, but one thing that Clausen isn’t going to give up is his number, something that Newton as already asked about.

While Jimmy Clausen has been gracious in welcoming Cam Newton via Twitter and a personal text message, the second-year quarterback from Notre Dame indicated he’s not planning to simply hand over his number or his position. Newton wore No.2 at Auburn and said Friday he’d like to keep it. Clausen might give up the number for the right price but isn’t ready to give up his job without a fight according to Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer. When Clausen arrived at Bank of America Stadium early Friday morning during the brief break in the lockout, he said general manager Marty Hurney and members of Rivera’s staff were encouraging. “I talked to some coaches and Marty and they said they want me on this team and they’re going to give me the opportunity to compete,” Clausen said. “That’s all I can ask for is a chance to compete. It’s going to be fun working with Cam and just competing each and every day.”
