Carolina Panthers: Top players to watch against Buffalo Bills



Prior to Carolina's preseason game against Buffalo on Thursday, the two met at midfield. Benjamin answered questions about the exchange by saying he was "moving on", although when asked what Newton said to him, Benjamin responded, "I don't know".

In an interview published Friday by The Athletic, Benjamin complained that he would have been "even more successful" if he had "just been drafted by somebody else", and that Carolina was "a bad fit from the get-go" for him.

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

Less than a week after Kelvin Benjamin blasted former teammate Cam Newton, it appears it could take a while before the hatchet gets buried.

Newton waved Davis away so he could have a one-on-one conversation with Benjamin, then followed the receiver as he tried to walk away.

Benjamin's comments with The Athletic brought the conflict into the spotlight.

Newton did his best to sidestep the comments by Benjamin.

Benjamin was traded last season to Buffalo after his production declined in the aftermath of an ACL injury.
