In fact, things may have escalated.

On the other side of the ball, Cam Newton made it his business to confront his former receiver, Kelvin Benjamin.

According to The Charlotte Observer's Jourdan Rodrigue, there was no smiling involved and Benjamin "shrugged [Newton] off mid-sentence" and started to walk away.

Benjamin may have walked away from the tense exchange with Newton, but he was happy run into the end zone shortly thereafter.

Benjamin's comments with The Athletic brought the conflict into the spotlight. Benjamin explained. "Any other accurate quarterback like [Aaron] Rodgers or Eli Manning or Big Ben [Roethlisberger] - anybody! - quarterbacks with knowledge, that know how to place a ball and give you a better chance to catch the ball".

Rachel Maddow suspects the news of this damning tape Michael Cohen has of Donald Trump may have been leaked from the Trump camp. He also said that Trump told Cohen that any payment should be by check, not cash, so it could be documented properly.


Benjamin was later asked if this was at all hard for him considering how close he and Newton were when his career began in Carolina.

Benjamin and Newton spent over three years as teammates with the Panthers.

When asked post-game what their whole interaction was about, Benjamin said that he "wasn't even trying to listen" to what Newton was saying, per Mike Rodak of ESPN.

After all the negativity from the past week from Benjamin regarding Cam Newton, it's good to see something positive come out of last night's preseason debut.
