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

In brief action Thursday for both players, Newton went 6-for-9 passing for 84 yards, while Benjamin caught four passes for 59 yards, including a 28-yard touchdown.

On Thursday, Cam Newton got the chance to confront Kelvin about his comments, but the Buffalo Bills WR chose to dismiss him and just walk away from the conversation.

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

When game time rolled around there was a warranted suspicion that something would go down, and it did.

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

"If you would've put me with any other quarterback, let's be real, you know what I'm saying? So we'll move forward as a team, and I'm hoping we've already done that".

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.

Benjamin had been pretty critical of the Panthers star in a recent interview.

Newton later waved off Benjamin in apparent frustration before the two parted ways for the remainder of warmups.
