Kelvin Benjamin on Panthers: Cam Newton, Bills WR receiver talk

Panthers preseason Q&A with Bills Wire for Week 1 matchup

For the Panthers, there were some unresolved issues between Cam Newton and Kelvin Benjamin. I don't know, man ...

As players were going through warmups, Newton approached Benjamin to shake his hand.

"I mean, I felt like I would've been even more successful if ..."

Just watch the pair in action as Benjamin, who continued his beef with Cam Newton just before this game started, shreds his coverage.

Benjamin was a first-round pick by the Panthers in 2014 and played in 40 career games with them, catching 184 passes for 2,424 yards and 19 touchdowns.

When Benjamin said Newton was an inaccurate passer last week, the quarterback didn't seem bothered by it. It just felt like I wasn't in that position.

Initially, Newton's only response, posted in a video to social media, was to say that he wasn't "gonna go back and forth with him" but continue to "work".

Newton made a decision to approach Benjamin, who didn't seem inclined to talk, prior to the game. When Benjamin left Newton hanging, Newton asked for privacy and had an apparent argument with his former teammate.

After calling Newton an inaccurate quaterback, Benjamin followed up his comments by saying he wouldn't have anything to say to Newton prior to Thursday's game. "I get it. I know what that's like, but you'd like to see him kind of move forward to his new team and embrace his new opportunity, rather than kind of go personal on it".
