Kelvin Benjamin & Cam Newton get into it before preseason tilt

Kelvin Benjamin & Cam Newton get into it before preseason tilt”

He scored a first-quarter touchdown in the game against the Panthers, giving the Bills an early lead, then leaped into the stands to celebrate with Buffalo fans.

Buffalo receiver Kelvin Benjamin, who was traded from Carolina three minutes before the 2017 trade deadline, made his return to Bank of America Stadium for the first time since a few choice words were spoken.

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. Newton followed Benjamin, but nothing positive seemed to come from their continued dialogue. "I should've never went to Carolina".

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".

"I ain't gonna go back and forth with him, I'm just gonna work", Newton said. "I wasn't even trying to listen".

"If you would've put me with any other quarterback, let's be real, you know what I'm saying?"

Newton did his best to sidestep the comments by Benjamin.

Things likely won't get much better for Benjamin in Buffalo, as he'll be catching passes from either A.J. McCarron, Josh Allen or Nathan Peterman.
