Narrator voice: "They did not grow together".

Benjamin was traded last season to Buffalo after his production declined in the aftermath of an ACL injury.

Tim Graham of The Athletic interviewed Benjamin on Friday and the wide receiver didn't pull any punches on his time spent with the Panthers or Cam Newton.

In today's National Football League, getting strong play at quarterback is one of the most important keys to a successful season.

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

"I ain't gonna go back and forth with him, I'm just gonna work", Newton said. It was a bad fit from the get-go. I don't know, man ...

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

And first overall pick Baker Mayfield will take the National Football League field for the first time on Thursday night when the Cleveland Browns (-1) visit the New York Giants.

As fate would have it, the Panthers and Bills will meet Thursday night in Buffalo for their first preseason game. This meant, naturally, Benjamin and Newton on the field at the same time before the game.

Cam appeared to try to squash the beef in the leadup to Carolina's preseason game with the Bills. but when Newton walked up to the wideout, things took a turn.

A picture from Max Henson of Panthers.com confirms Cam's, ahem, displeasure with the situation.

The Charlotte Observer published a video of the exchange here.
