Cam Newton Confronts Kelvin Benjamin About His Comments; It Did Not Go Well (VIDEO)
Earlier this week, former Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin pretty much blasted his entire time with the franchise, especially Cam Newton and questioned his intelligence at the QB position.
On Thursday, Cam Newton got the chance to confront Kelvin about his comments, but the Buffalo Bills WR decided to dismiss him and just walk away from the conversation.

Cam Newton and Kelvin Benjamin finally met up to talk on the field. Through my binoculars I didn’t see any smiling, KB shrugged him off mid-sentence & starts to walk away, then Cam makes a “bye then” motion with his hand. Did not appear to go well. Can’t speak for what was said.

Tim Graham of The Athletic interviewed Benjamin on Friday and the wide receiver didn’t pull any punches on his time spent with the Panthers or Cam Newton.
“I mean, I felt like I would’ve been even more successful if … I don’t know, man … If I would’ve … Looking back on it, I should’ve just been drafted by somebody else,” Benjamin recently told The Athletic’s Tim Graham. “I should’ve never went to Carolina. Truly, I just think Carolina was bad for me. It was a bad fit from the get-go.
“If you would’ve put me with any other quarterback, let’s be real, you know what I’m saying? 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. It just felt like I wasn’t in that position.
