Newton Working Out Today with Ken Dorsey In Florida

Ken Dorsey had a big career at Miami (Fla.) a decade ago, with some limited success as a (mostly) NFL backup quarterback. Peter King of Sports Illustrated writes that after Dorsey just finished eight days working with the first pick in the draft, Carolina quarterback Cam Newton, they’ll be back at it again today in Bradenton, Fla. In 2001 and 2002, Dorsey, at Miami, was coached by Hurricane offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski. In 2007 and 2008, Dorsey, with the Cleveland Browns, was coached by Browns offensive coordinator Chudzinski.

Newton was able to get a Carolina playbook, with Panthers offensive coordinator Chudzinski’s encyclopedic offense, to take with him during the lockout, and Dorsey spent last week instructing Newton in the finer points of the offense, in addition to telling him the expectations and coaching methods of Chudzinski. “The best way to describe it,” said the quarterback coach who readied Newton for his pre-draft workouts, George Whitfield, “is it’s like an old pilot grooming a new pilot to take over his plane. The old pilot’s teaching him about every one of the controls in the cockpit.”
