Video Shows Cam Newton Confronting Kelvin Benjamin, Getting In His Face Before Preseason Game Days After Benjamin Criticized Him
Cam Newton has not forgotten what Kelvin Benjamin said about him. Last week, the Bills wide receiver bashed his former QB by saying that he would have been better off playing with another “accurate” quarterback like Eli Manning or Aaron Rodgers.

Q: The last play of your college career, you caught a touchdown to win the national title for Florida State with 13 seconds left. Then you set rookie receiving records for Carolina. Things turned in 2015. How would you assess your career since your rookie season?
A: I mean, I felt like I would’ve been even more successful if … I don’t know, man … If I would’ve … Looking back on it, I should’ve just been drafted by somebody else. I should’ve never went to Carolina. Truly, I just think Carolina was bad for me. It was a bad fit from the get-go. If you would’ve put me with any other quarterback, let’s be real, you know what I’m saying? Any other accurate quarterback like Rodgers or Eli Manning or Big Ben — anybody! — quarterbacks with knowledge, that know how to place a ball and give you a better chance to catch the ball. It just felt like I wasn’t in that position.
Benjamin then took to Twitter to double down on his comments.
Before tonight’s preseason game before the Bills and the Panthers, Newton went up to Benjamin to shake his but Benjamin refused.
Newton then started following Benjamin around and even got in his face before walking off the field.
The whole thing was awkward and LOL at the same time.
Not a good look for Kelvin to get small and not talk to Cam after everything he said about him in the media.
And of course Twitter is not going to let him off the hook for it.
Kelvin Benjamin’s career is over. Cancel it.
