Carolina Panthers: 3 Big takeaways from Preseason Week 1

Cam Newton apparently believes in the saying, "If you have a problem with somebody, tell it to their face".

Prior to Carolina's preseason game against Buffalo on Thursday, the two met at midfield. Benjamin explained. "Any other accurate quarterback like [Aaron] Rodgers or Eli Manning or Big Ben [Roethlisberger] - anybody! - quarterbacks with knowledge, that know how to place a ball and give you a better chance to catch the ball".

Carolina traded Benjamin to Buffalo last season.

While Newton seemed initially friendly during the meeting, neither man was smiling as Benjamin started to walk away from him. "Just moving on from it".

Newton then motioned to Davis to leave and proceeded to follow Benjamin around while talking to him with his hands behind his back for a few moments.


A reporter asked what Newton was trying to say to him.

The Carolina Panthers opened the 2018 preseason with a 28-23 victory over their cousins from up north, the Buffalo Bills.

Newton, the 2015 NFL MVP, said little in response, but did approach Benjamin on Thursday night near midfield, hand extended.

Benjamin was later asked if this was at all hard for him considering how close he and Newton were when his career began in Carolina.

Luckily, the two won't see each other for the rest of the year.
