Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton apologized in a video on Twitter for sexist remarks he made toward the Charlotte Observer's Jourdan Rodrigue.

In the video, Newton said his "word choice was extremely degrading and disrespectful":

During his weekly availability with the media Wednesday, Newton said "it's funny to hear a female talk about routes" when Rodrigue asked about Devin Funchess' route running in Carolina's 33-30 win over the New England Patriots.
