Panthers preseason Q&A with Bills Wire for Week 1 matchup

11 August, 2018

Mere days after Kelvin Benjamin's critical comments toward Cam Newton, the two former Panthers teammates got to see one another face-to-face before their preseason opener Thursday.

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. "It was a bad fit from the get-go".

Much of the discussion was inaudible from the video, but Newton did follow an agitated Benjamin as he attempted to walk away from the Panthers quarterback.

Newton later waved off Benjamin in apparent frustration before the two parted ways for the remainder of warmups. "Just moving on from it". He also reiterated that he was "moving on" from his comments about Newton.

Trump thanks Kim as North Korea transfers remains of Korean War soldiers
The two leaders also agreed to build a "robust peace regime" and to return the remains of prisoners of the 1950-1953 Korean War. DPAA has identified locations where they believe there are major concentrations of remains inside North Korea.

Newton declined to speak to reporters after the game, but Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis, who was talking with Benjamin before Newton arrived, said of the brush-up: "Just brothers having a conversation, that's really all it was". Benjamin, who has been a good-but-not-great player in his five-year career, believes Newton is inaccurate and without superior football knowledge.

When Benjamin said Newton was an inaccurate passer last week, the quarterback didn't seem bothered by it.

Following the game, Cam kept quiet about the incident, but Benjamin spoke up a little about why he showed little interest in listening to Newton and what he had to say.
