After claiming that LeBron James is the MVP because he's been so good in the first round of the playoffs throughout his career, Cowherd moved on to Cam Newton and the reason he doesn't have a job.

Meanwhile, Tom Brady is selling snake oil during a pandemic, wandering into strangers' houses and disregarding public safety measures.

Obviously, Newton isn't the only quarterback in the NFL doing charity work. Brady does plenty of his own. Just this weekend he helped raise $20 million for COVDI-19 relief. Of course, that was raised in a high-profile celebrity golf match with his famous friends Peyton Manning, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.
