Cam Newton Gets In Heated Altercation With Kelvin Benjamin

10 August 2018

As fate would have it, the Panthers and Bills will meet Thursday night in Buffalo for their first preseason game. In fact, things may have escalated.

Earlier this week, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin threw the Carolina Panthers and quarterback Cam Newton under the bus saying he should have never gone to the team in the first place.

The conversation continued until Benjamin said something to Newton that had Newton gesturing that he was finished with him. The beef stems from this quote from Benjamin speaking to The Athletic on his time in Carolina. "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".

Benjamin had plenty to say in an interview that came out last Saturday, calling his tenure in Carolina a "bad fit from the get-go" and speculating he might have been more successful had he played with "any other quarterback".

"If you would've put me with any other quarterback, let's be real, you know what I'm saying?"

Newton did his best to sidestep the comments by Benjamin.

Charlotte Observer visual journalist Jeff Siner captured the exchange, which quickly lit up social media.

When Benjamin said Newton was an inaccurate passer last week, the quarterback didn't seem bothered by it.
