Cam Newton, Kelvin Benjamin Have Awkward Exchange Before Panthers-Bills Preseason Game

10 August 2018

Cam Newton and Kelvin Benjamin did not sort out their disagreement on Thursday. The Buffalo Bills wideout claimed the Panthers were "bad" for him and that he wished he'd started his career with a more "accurate" quarterback. Benjamin answered questions about the exchange by saying he was "moving on", although when asked what Newton said to him, Benjamin responded, "I don't know". The receiver's numbers didn't improve after being thrown into a passing game that ranked 20th in the National Football League last season, finishing his first campaign with the Bills with 217 yards on 16 catches with one touchdown and two games missed with a torn meniscus.

On the other side of the ball, Cam Newton made it his business to confront his former receiver, Kelvin Benjamin.
