Cam Newton took a moment to reach out to James White late Monday night after the tragic death of White's father.
@SweetFeet_White Praying for you & your family | May God strengthen you

Newton is one of many in the NFL sending well-wishes to White. Former Patriots quarterback Tom Brady sent his condolences on Sunday as did Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who was White's teammate at Wisconsin.
White was a late scratch from Sunday night's Patriots-Seahawks game. Pats safety Devin McCourty returned an interception for a touchdown early in the first quarter, found the camera, and delivered a special message of his own to the running back.
