The conversation continued until Benjamin said something to Newton that had Newton gesturing that he was finished with him.

Mere days after Kelvin Benjamin's critical comments toward Cam Newton, the two former Panthers teammates got to see one another face-to-face before their preseason opener Thursday.

He was then asked if the situation was tough for him considering his past close relationship with Newton when he was with the Panthers, and here's what he had to say. Charlotte NBC News anchor Nick Carboni posted Benjamin's ripping of Newton on Twitter.

"It was a bad fit from the get-go", Kelvin told The Athletic. 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. In Benjamin's rookie 2014 season, he had 73 grabs for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns.

"Just moving on from it", Benjamin kept repeating when pressed by reporters about what was said in the exchange, per Panthers insider Max Henson. After some more choice words, both players walked away with Newton waving him away. "I play for the Buffalo Bills". Well, Benjamin hasn't been a legitimate star in years, and Newton has one great season to his name with a bunch of other decent ones attached to his resume.
