Ahead of this weekend's game between the Las Vegas Raiders and New England Patriots, Jon Gruden was asked about Cam Newton, who he met in 2011 as part of his QB Camp series for ESPN.

"I haven't seen many guys walk through my doors that look like Cam. I call him 'Slam.' Slam Newton. That was the nickname I gave him. He is a power forward playing quarterback," Gruden said.

The Raiders are 2-0 heading into the matchup with Newton's Patriots. He is 45-of-63 for 552 yards, with one touchdown and one interception, while adding 122 yards on 26 carries and four touchdowns in two games.

"Cam looks like he's the usual Cam. He's a threat to do a lot of different things," Gruden added.
