Cam Newton Gets In Heated Altercation With Kelvin Benjamin

Cam Newton Gets In Heated Altercation With Kelvin Benjamin

It was a fortuitous matchup in the preseason opener after the wideout in the same interview this week called the Panthers, his former team, "a bad fit from the get-go".

During individual warmups about an hour and a half before the game, a photographer from The Charlotte Observer captured Newton approaching Benjamin as he spoke with former teammate and current Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis. A first-round pick by the Panthers in 2014, Benjamin was traded to the Bills midway through last season for a pair of draft picks.

Benjamin's comments with The Athletic brought the conflict into the spotlight. I don't know, man ... Newton followed, trying to catch up, before seeming to give up. "It just felt like I wasn't in that position". This was not one of them.

"I've spoken with Kelvin, and that's not how I want us to handle things like that". That is because the Carolina Panthers, like most teams, are likely to limit the amount of playing time for their starters to only a series or two in hopes of avoiding possible injuries to key players.

News 4 learned that Cheatham was an employee at the Eastern Reception, Diagnostic and Correctional Center in Bonne Terre. The children were described as three girls and one boy, between the ages of 5 and 12.

Cam Newton and Kelvin Benjamin did not sort out their disagreement on Thursday.

"I just think Carolina was bad for me", Benjamin told The Athletic.

Benjamin may have walked away from the tense exchange with Newton, but he was happy run into the end zone shortly thereafter.
