Kelvin Benjamin Explains Why He Walked Away From Cam Newton During Confrontation

It's pretty safe to say if Kelvin Benjamin makes it to free agency, a reunion with Newton and the Panthers is not likely to happen.

Kelvin Benjamin and Cam Newton met up publicly and talked ahead of the Bills and Panthers preseason game Thursday.

Newton however finished with the MVP award during the 2015 season when Benjamin wasn't playing.

Benjamin had plenty to say in an interview that came out last Saturday, calling his tenure in Carolina a "bad fit from the get-go" and speculating he might have been more successful had he played with "any other quarterback".

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

"Just moving on from it", Benjamin kept repeating when pressed by reporters about what was said in the exchange, per Panthers insider Max Henson.

Newton did his best to sidestep the comments by Benjamin. As well, Andrew Luck will return from last year's season-ending injury in Indianapolis at Seattle (-2) and Deshaun Watson will do the same as his Houston Texans are 2.5-point road underdogs against the Kansas City Chiefs. He caught four passes for 59 yards and a touchdown in the preseason opener, while Newton completed 6 of 9 passes for 84 yards for the Panthers.

"Not at all man", he answered.
