Cam Newton, Kelvin Benjamin Have Confrontation Before Game

Grant SmithAug 11, 2018

"I wasn't even trying to listen", Benjamin said, via the Panthers website. Benjamin explained. "Any other accurate quarterback like [Aaron] Rodgers or Eli Manning or Big Ben [Roethlisberger] - anybody! - quarterbacks with knowledge, that know how to place a ball and give you a better chance to catch the ball".

Newton did not speak to the media postgame. The video was overlaid with the captions "All love on this side" and "No excuses just work".

During individual warmups about an hour and a half before the game, a photographer from The Charlotte Observer captured Newton approaching Benjamin as he spoke with former teammate and current Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis.

"Moving on from it", Benjamin said repeatedly.

Benjamin's comments with The Athletic brought the conflict into the spotlight. "So we'll move forward as a team, and I'm hoping we've already done that".

As for Benjamin, the Panthers actually had to deny reports last summer that Benjamin showed up to OTAs at 280 pounds. I don't know, man ... Well, Benjamin hasn't been a legitimate star in years, and Newton has one great season to his name with a bunch of other decent ones attached to his resume.

Last night, the Carolina Panthers QB spotted the Buffalo Bills WR on the field and he first tried to shake his hand, but was turned down.
