Beef Between Cam Newton And Kelvin Benjamin Seems to Have Escalated

AJ McCarron Josh Allen rank dead last in PFF QB rankings

Newton, the 2015 NFL MVP, said little in response, but did approach Benjamin on Thursday night near midfield, hand extended. In fact, things may have escalated.

Last week, Bills wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin blamed his struggles with the Carolina Panthers on not being able to play with an "accurate" quarterback "with knowledge."

According to The Charlotte Observer's Jourdan Rodrigue, there was no smiling involved and Benjamin "shrugged [Newton] off mid-sentence" and started to walk away.

Benjamin's comments with The Athletic brought the conflict into the spotlight. Newton followed Benjamin, but nothing positive seemed to come from their continued dialogue.

The Carolina Panthers have spent roughly the past three weeks in training camp preparing for the upcoming season. "If you would've put me with any other quarterback, let's be real, you know what I'm saying?"

Newton did his best to sidestep the comments by Benjamin.

Benjamin criticized his former quarterback less than a week ago.

Carolina took Benjamin in the first round in 2014 and shipped him to Buffalo midway through last season.

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".
