BALTIMORE — Carolina Panthers quarterback  Cam Newton is being applauded after a couple saw him give a meal to a homeless man before a preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens last week.

After Newton and several of his teammates were leaving dinner, he left the restaurant with two bags – one apparently for himself and another for a homeless man.

ESPN reports that Candace Gregory and her husband were walking around downtown Baltimore when they spotted the act of kindness.

As Newton was walking passed a bus stop, he quickly passed along the food to the homeless man and continued to walk.

“People talk about him dabbing and all the stuff that in my mind ultimately should be irrelevant, because that doesn’t get to the heart of who he is,” Candace said of Newton, according to ESPN.

Newton is coming off an excellent season, where the MVP amassed a 99.4 quarterback rating with 38 total passing touchdowns and 12 rushing touchdowns. The Panthers eventually made it to the Super Bowl and lost to the Denver Broncos.

The Panthers next game is against the Tennessee Titans at 3 p.m. on Aug. 20.
