Newton tries to shake Kelvin's hand. but Benjamin turns it down.

Cam Newton confronted Kelvin Benjamin before Thursday night's preseason game between the Carolina Panthers and Buffalo Bills.

Following the game, Cam kept quiet about the incident, but Benjamin spoke up a little about why he showed little interest in listening to Newton and what he had to say.

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 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".

Benjamin finished the game with four catches, 59 yards and one touchdown. "It just felt like I wasn't in that position".

Benjamin eventually requested a trade and landed in Buffalo in the middle of last season for draft picks.

Newton did his best to sidestep the comments by Benjamin. Coming off a 9-8 straight up and 9-6-2 against the spread season, the Buffalo Bills open the 2018 preseason with a full-fledged quarterback battle.

Neither will get the opportunity to hash things out since the two teams do not face each other in the upcoming season.
