Newton, the 2015 NFL MVP, said little in response, but did approach Benjamin on Thursday night near midfield, hand extended. Any other accurate quarterback like 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.
Newton did not speak to the media postgame. Benjamin was speaking with another former teammate, Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis, who appeared to say with a smile, "I thought we were cool", while standing very close to the receiver. Newton followed Benjamin, but nothing positive seemed to come from their continued dialogue. "Just moving on from it".
In an interview with The Athletic's Tim Graham last week, the Bills wide receiver explained that he wished he hadn't been drafted by the Panthers and lamented the fact that he had to play with a QB like Newton. After some more choice words, both players walked away with Newton waving him away.More news: 1200 tourists being evacuated from Indonesia quake islands: disaster agency

"I ain't gonna go back and forth with him, I'm just gonna work", Newton said. He also reiterated that he was "moving on" from his comments about Newton.
This game against the Bills the focus will be on those reserve players.
The altercation goes on for a while. before it's clear the two can't see eye to eye and Cam bolts for the locker room.
