Benjamin didn't want to talk to Newton and he didn't want to talk to reporters about Newton, saying: "I mean, I'm just moving on from it I guess". Newton followed Benjamin, but nothing positive seemed to come from their continued dialogue.

When it became clear Benjamin wasn't over their squabbling, Newton ushered away a Bills player for privacy, but Benjamin walked away from the conversation.

"It was a bad fit from the get-go", Kelvin told The Athletic.

Cam Newton and Kelvin Benjamin did not sort out their disagreement on Thursday. 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?" Nothing to see here, just a few position battles. During pregame warmups, Newton appeared to attempt to make peace with Benjamin, who clearly had no interest in chopping it up with Newton before the Carolina quarterback shrugged off his former WR and gave up on the exchange. A first-round draft pick, Benjamin looked destined to be Newton's top receiver for years until the injury, and he never reproduced his numbers from a strong rookie season after returning from injury.

The meeting comes after Benjamin made comments criticizing his former team, Carolina, and quarterback, Newton.
