TMZ reports that the FBI is now interested in allegations that college football players are being shopped. This involves the allegations surrounding Auburn football player Cam Newton.
According to the report, “Bond’s attorney confirms to TMZ Sports that the FBI has requested a sit-down meeting with his client — and tells us the agent who contacted him said, ‘We are interested in whether young men are being shopped to colleges.'”
This deepens the drama involved in the case. Will this improve the chances that the truth comes out?
Certainly, it was a bad day for Auburn and its star football player with new revelations of academic misconduct while Cam Newton was at Florida. This undermined any confidence in Newton’s statements, and highlighted the other character issues that plagued Newton’s past.
