We had some rare preseason fireworks last night. Had to expect something to go down between Cam Newton and Bills WR (former teammate) Kelvin Benjamin after Benjamin’s hard criticism pretty much blaming Cam Newton for some of his playing in Carolina. Almost had two 1k yard seasons but for some reason felt the need to say the following:
“It was a bad fit from the get-go. If you would’ve put me with any other quarterback, let’s be real, you know what I’m saying? Any other accurate quarterback like [Aaron] 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. It just felt like I wasn’t in that position.”
As we know Benjamin was reprimanded by Bills coach Sean Mcdermott for his remarks and warranting unneeded bad blood with their upcoming opponent. Now to last night actions with Cam being the instigator and rightfully so. Clearly had every intention to seek out Benjamin and try to get some answers. Of course the man who talks behind the mic and not face-to-face wanted no smoke. Weak move by not even shaking Cam’s hand as he stood there fronting him with that 118 million dollar grin. Could barely keep eye contacted and repeatedly ordered Cam to return to his side of the field. SOFT. Really odd for a player to publicly blame an ex-teammate in the fashion kelvin did. For a guy that comes into camp seemingly out of shape and overweight almost every year it seems. Cam isn’t the most accurate QB but if you look around the league there’s about 20 teams that have definitely worst situations. (Including his own Bills, I mean AJ Mccarron, Nathan Peterman and Josh Allen) We already know who’ll will be to blame this year.
Maybe he just hates Cam’s font on Instagram posts like the rest of us. I know it makes me want to chuck my phone when I see it.
Or is it the smile? Jealous he cant pull of the lavish fashion style? Who knows. Good luck in Upstate New York this year Kelvin, you’ll need it!
