Cam Newton confronts Kelvin Benjamin over remarks

Cam Newton confronts Kelvin Benjamin over remarks

Last week, Bills wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin blamed his struggles with the Carolina Panthers on not being able to play with an "accurate" quarterback "with knowledge." Newton engaged Benjamin briefly before the receiver, who called out his former quarterback just a few days ago, started to amble away. 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.

"I mean, I felt like I would've been even more successful if ..." I don't know, man ...

However, the players will finally get a chance for live action as they face the Buffalo Bills in the first preseason game. "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". Newton followed, trying to catch up, before seeming to give up.

Newton did his best to sidestep the comments by Benjamin. "Looking back on it, I should've just been drafted by somebody else", Benjamin recently told The Athletic's Tim Graham.

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