Kelvin Benjamin on Panthers: Cam Newton, Bills WR receiver talk

Kelvin Benjamin on Panthers: Cam Newton, Bills WR receiver talk

Cam Newton apparently believes in the saying, "If you have a problem with somebody, tell it to their face".

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. Any other accurate quarterback like Rodgers or Eli Manning or Big Ben - anybody! - quarterbacks with knowledge, that know how to place a ball and give you a better chance to catch the ball.

Benjamin eventually requested a trade and landed in Buffalo in the middle of last season for draft picks.

Benjamin subsequently walked away from Newton, and now he explained why he did that.

These preseason games are pivotal for the players as some try to work off rust from the offseason, while others try to move up the depth chart or even are fighting for a spot on the 53-man roster.

"Moving on from it", Benjamin said repeatedly. He scored a first-quarter touchdown in the game against the Panthers, giving the Bills an early lead, then leaped into the stands to celebrate with Buffalo fans.

Benjamin was later asked if this was at all hard for him considering how close he and Newton were when his career began in Carolina. Still, Benjamin should keep his comments in check, and Newton shouldn't waste time trying to shake a hand that dropped so many catchable balls over the years.
