"If you would've put me with any other quarterback, let's be real, you know what I'm saying?"
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". It just felt like I wasn't in that position.
When game time rolled around there was a warranted suspicion that something would go down, and it did.
It appears Kelvin Benjamin and Cam Newton won't be squashing their beef anytime soon. When Benjamin left Newton hanging, Newton asked for privacy and had an apparent argument with his former teammate. While Newton seemed initially friendly during the meeting, neither man was smiling as Benjamin started to walk away from him. This was not one of them. "So we'll move forward as a team, and I'm hoping we've already done that". Here are three takeaways from the Carolina Panthers bout against the Buffalo Bills.
Panthers tight end Greg Olsen called Benjamin's barbs "weird", adding Sunday (via Panthers.com): "Things didn't work out here for him". "I should've never went to Carolina".
Newton did his best to sidestep the comments by Benjamin.
