Cam Newton confronts Kelvin Benjamin over remarks

Share

"It was a bad fit from the get-go", Kelvin told The Athletic.

The meeting comes after Benjamin made comments criticizing his former team, Carolina, and quarterback, Newton.

Prior to Thursday night's preseason game between Newton's Carolina Panthers and Benjamin's Buffalo Bills, Cam went over to speak with Benjamin. "It just felt like I wasn't in that position". In Benjamin's rookie 2014 season, he had 73 grabs for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns. Benjamin was speaking with another former teammate, Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis, who appeared to say with a smile, "I thought we were cool", while standing very close to the receiver.

"Just moving on from it", Benjamin kept repeating when pressed by reporters about what was said in the exchange, per Panthers insider Max Henson. Newton followed, still talking while Benjamin shrugged off whatever he was hearing.
