Cam Newton confronts Kelvin Benjamin over remarks

Bills roster bubble 10 players who need a big game vs. Panthers

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton took some time before last night's preseason opener against the Buffalo Bills to confront his former teammate, wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin.

Cam Newton and Kelvin Benjamin addressed their feud in what seems to be the most awkward manner possible. "It was a bad fit from the get-go".

Newton walked over to talk to Benjamin as the Bills receiver was talking to Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis. During pregame warmups, Newton appeared to attempt to make peace with Benjamin, who clearly had no interest in chopping it up with Newton before the Carolina quarterback shrugged off his former WR and gave up on the exchange. "If you would've put me with any other quarterback, let's be real, you know what I'm saying?"

After getting drafted by Carolina in the first round in 2014, Benjamin was sent to Buffalo for two draft picks ahead of the 2017 trade deadline. "It just felt like I wasn't in that position". As well, Andrew Luck will return from last year's season-ending injury in Indianapolis at Seattle (-2) and Deshaun Watson will do the same as his Houston Texans are 2.5-point road underdogs against the Kansas City Chiefs.

What either player said is unknown, but it really didn't look like two old friends joking around before a game in which the Panthers prevailed 28-23.

Benjamin finished the game with four catches, 59 yards and one touchdown.
