Cam Newton Gets In Heated Altercation With Kelvin Benjamin

It was a not-so-veiled shot at Cam Newton, which led to a curious scene ahead of Thursday's preseason game between the Bills and Panthers.

For the Panthers, there were some unresolved issues between Cam Newton and Kelvin Benjamin.

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

In the video below, it shows Newton going to shake Kelvin Benjamin's hand and Benjamin refusing. That may not be the case anymore, as Newton didn't seem able to say what he wanted when approaching Benjamin in-person.

When it became clear Benjamin wasn't over their squabbling, Newton ushered away a Bills player for privacy, but Benjamin walked away from the conversation. "It just felt like I wasn't in that position".


In an interview with The Athletic's Tim Graham last week, Benjamin was asked how his career has gone since his rookie season and the receiver said he wishes he'd been drafted by another team and wished for another quarterback.

Newton did his best to sidestep the comments by Benjamin.

Just watch the pair in action as Benjamin, who continued his beef with Cam Newton just before this game started, shreds his coverage.

Newton later waved off Benjamin in apparent frustration before the two parted ways for the remainder of warmups.
