Kelvin Benjamin & Cam Newton get into it before preseason tilt

"It just felt like I wasn't in that position".

On the other side of the ball, Cam Newton made it his business to confront his former receiver, Kelvin Benjamin. When Benjamin left Newton hanging, Newton asked for privacy and had an apparent argument with his former teammate.

Benjamin was a first-round pick by the Panthers in 2014 and played in 40 career games with them, catching 184 passes for 2,424 yards and 19 touchdowns.

Now, it was time to face said quarterback and this is how it went down. Newton apparently wanted to discuss. Benjamin didn't appear to want to have much of a 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?" It's pretty safe to say if Kelvin Benjamin makes it to free agency, a reunion with Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers is not going to happen. The beef stems from this quote from Benjamin speaking to The Athletic on his time in Carolina. "So we'll move forward as a team, and I'm hoping we've already done that". Charlotte NBC News anchor Nick Carboni posted Benjamin's ripping of Newton on Twitter.
