Cam Newton, Kelvin Benjamin speak prior to preseason game

Newton tries to shake Kelvin's hand. but Benjamin turns it down. Benjamin didn't want to talk to Newton and he didn't want to talk to reporters about Newton, saying: "I mean, I'm just moving on from it I guess".

Newton chose to approach Benjamin, who didn't seem inclined to talk, prior to the game. While Newton seemed initially friendly during the meeting, neither man was smiling as Benjamin started to walk away from him.

After Benjamin's comments were published, McDermott expressed disapproval, saying Sunday (via ESPN), "There's a time and a place - I'm not saying specific to what comments were made - there's a time and place for things like that". It was a bad fit from the get-go. Anybody! QBs with knowledge, who 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. Charlotte NBC News anchor Nick Carboni posted Benjamin's ripping of Newton on Twitter. A first-round draft pick, Benjamin looked destined to be Newton's top receiver for years until the injury, and he never reproduced his numbers from a strong rookie season after returning from injury. When Benjamin left Newton hanging, Newton asked for privacy and had an apparent argument with his former teammate.
