Colin Kaepernick, Cam Newton talk competition, Jonathan Martin-Richie Incognito, Michael Sam

49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and Panthers QB Cam Newton sat down with ESPN for Sunday Conversation. They discussed a broad range of topics, and we've got a a few minutes of video.

In case you were not aware, Colin Kaepernick and Cam Newton will be co-hosting the Hall of Game Awards show on Cartoon Network on Monday evening. The show will broadcast at 7 p.m. (I believe it's the same in all time zones), and is an hour and a half long.

As part of their promotion of the event, the two quarterbacks took part in ESPN's Sunday Conversation. You can check it out on Sportscenter, but the video above is a clip of it, touching on three different topics. They talk about their competition against each other and Russell Wilson. Then they get into the discussion of the Jonathan Martin-Richie Incognito mess. Kap talks about how the 49ers did not need to change anything after Martin left the Dolphins because they have a strong locker room.

The clip above wraps up with the two quarterbacks getting a chance to talk about Missouri defensive end Michael Sam, who recently announced to the world he is gay. Both said Sam would be entirely welcome on their respective teams. Kap put it best when he said that everyone there knows Sam will have been drafted to help their team win games. He said that nobody would care whether a player is black, white, straight, gay, Christian, Jewish or whatever.

Both quarterbacks are still relatively young, but both seem to have a good head on their shoulders. You can check out the interview on SportCenter. I don't know exactly when it will appear, but it should be more than just the clip above.
