Benjamin's comments with The Athletic brought the conflict into the spotlight.

During warm-ups, Newton approached Benjamin on the field and started talking with him.

The Carolina Panthers have spent roughly the past three weeks in training camp preparing for the upcoming season. I don't know, man ...

When it became clear Benjamin wasn't over their squabbling, Newton ushered away a Bills player for privacy, but Benjamin walked away from the conversation.


"I just think Carolina was bad for me", Benjamin told The Athletic.

"I mean, I felt like I would've been even more successful if ..."

"If you would've put me with any other quarterback, let's be real, you know what I'm saying?"

Newton however finished with the MVP award during the 2015 season when Benjamin wasn't playing.

Benjamin played for the Panthers for parts of three seasons before they traded him to Buffalo a year ago when the receiver made it clear he wanted to move on.
