Kelvin Benjamin complimented Panthers WR after preseason game

It's pretty safe to say if Kelvin Benjamin makes it to free agency, a reunion with Newton and the Panthers is not likely to happen.

The Carolina Panthers are kicking off their preseason with a visit to the Buffalo Bills, a game that reunited Benjamin, the former Panthers receiver now playing in Buffalo, with his old quarterback in Newton. Benjamin didn't shake it, and although Panthers linebacker tried to intervene, Newton waved him off and kept the conversation going. He called the team a "bad fit from the get-go". 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.

Much of the discussion was inaudible from the video, but Newton did follow an agitated Benjamin as he attempted to walk away from the Panthers quarterback. Benjamin was traded to Buffalo during the season previous year. After some more choice words, both players walked away with Newton waving him away. Coming off a 9-8 straight up and 9-6-2 against the spread season, the Buffalo Bills open the 2018 preseason with a full-fledged quarterback battle. He also reiterated that he was "moving on" from his comments about Newton.

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