Cam Newton confronts Kelvin Benjamin before Bills-Panthers game. Twitter goes nuts

10 August 2018

Cam Newton and Kelvin Benjamin addressed their feud in what seems to be the most awkward manner possible. A first-round pick by the Panthers in 2014, Benjamin was traded to the Bills midway through last season for a pair of draft picks.

On Thursday, Cam Newton got the chance to confront Kelvin about his comments, but the Buffalo Bills WR made a decision to dismiss him and just walk away from the conversation.

All this beef comes from an interview posted by The Athletic where Benjamin says he wishes he was never drafted by the Panthers and also said that he would have done a lot better if he was drafted by any other quarterback. When Benjamin left Newton hanging, Newton asked for privacy and had an apparent argument with his former teammate.

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.

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?"

Prior to Carolina's preseason game against Buffalo on Thursday, the two met at midfield.
