(WTHR) – One man could have cashed in, if he would have said yes to switching seats with Panthers Quarterback Cam Newton.

The 2015 NFL MVP was on a flight from Paris to the U.S. when he was spotted offering a man $1,500 to switch seats.

According to Eli Edwards, who posted video of the encounter on Twitter, Newton was asking to swap seats for the extra leg room.


The man said no, sending Newton back to his cramped seat for the 10-hour flight.
