Cam Newton turns down opportunity to switch his jersey to No. 2

According to Scott Fowler of the Charlotte Observer, quarterback Jimmy Clausen has decided to change his jersey number from No. 2 to No.7.  Last season Cam Newton asked Clausen if he’d allow him to have the No.2, but Clausen turned him down.

Now you would think Newton would jump at the opportunity to change his number from No.1 to No.2, since that was his number in college,  but he won’t.  Instead new punter Nick Harris will wear the No.2.
