Cam Newton confronts Kelvin Benjamin over remarks

WATCH Every pass from Josh Allen's first game

The conversation continued until Benjamin said something to Newton that had Newton gesturing that he was finished with him.

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton took some time before last night's preseason opener against the Buffalo Bills to confront his former teammate, wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin. That meeting was obviously going to be a little awkward after The Athletic published comments from Benjamin slamming his fit with the Panthers and Newton's football IQ.

Benjamin subsequently walked away from Newton, and now he explained why he did that. "If you would've put me with any other quarterback, let's be real, you know what I'm saying?" Anybody! Quarterbacks with knowledge, who know how to place a ball and give you a better chance to catch the ball. In Benjamin's rookie 2014 season, he had 73 grabs for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns.

"Moving on from it", Benjamin said repeatedly.




A reporter asked what Newton was trying to say to him.

Benjamin may have walked away from the tense exchange with Newton, but he was happy run into the end zone shortly thereafter. Coming off a 9-8 straight up and 9-6-2 against the spread season, the Buffalo Bills open the 2018 preseason with a full-fledged quarterback battle.

Luckily, the two won't see each other for the rest of the year.
