Kelvin Benjamin Explains Why He Walked Away From Cam Newton During Confrontation

Panthers star QB Cam Newton, who was the subject of Benjamin's recent rant, approached the former Panthers wideout before last night's Carolina-Buffalo preseason matchup, and the interaction wasn't pretty.

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

The comments that got the attention of Newton and plenty of other people - including Buffalo Coach Sean McDermott - featured this passage: "If you would've put me with any other quarterback, let's be real, you know what I'm saying?"

"I wasn't even trying to listen", Benjamin said, via the Panthers website.

Benjamin, who said he would have been more successful if he was drafted by Carolina and had a "quarterback with knowledge", brushed the encounter aside after Carolina won the preseason meeting 28-23. Benjamin told The Athletic last week that he wishes he was never drafted by the Panthers, in part because of a lack of chemistry with Newton. Is Benjamin right, or is he bitter about the trade that sent him to Buffalo?

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. Benjamin and Newton spoke on the field before the game in what looked like an awkward exchange. Newton declined to speak to reporters after the game.
