But Cam Newton was willing to pay big money to make sure he was comfortable during his flight.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was recently on a flight and tried to exchange seats with a man, even offering him a lump sum of cash, but was denied.
The video shows Newton pointing at a seat that's already been taken - a seat that seems to be in a row without seats in front of it.
Nashville Predators trade PK Subban to New Jersey Devils
Subban from the Nashville Predators on Saturday in exchange for Steven Santini , Jeremy Davies and a pair of draft picks. The 2013 Norris Trophy victor spent the past three years in Nashville and had 31 points in 63 games last season.
After his offer was rejected, Newton is seen walking over to his assigned seat.
Sports radio host Andy Slater later reported that Newton was originally in a business class seat for the 10-hour flight home, but then missed the flight.
Edwards, who now competes on NBC's "Titan Games", told CNN that he had encountered Newton in the airport and was on the same flight leaving Paris as the Carolina quarterback. When they boarded the plane, he began recording and saw the athlete again as the plane was getting ready to leave.

Newton was sharing photos in Paris for much of last week, including Instagram pictures at the Louvre and Paris Fashion Week.
Newton has not commented on the video, but it looks like he had a pretty swell time in France.
