Kelvin Benjamin Cam Newton Beef

Kelvin Benjamin has no love lost for Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers. On Friday, former Carolina Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, who was traded to the Buffalo Bills during last season, opened up about his time with the Panthers and what talked about what it was like to play with the 2015 league MVP.

Further to that, Benjamin said Carolina was not a good fit for him and added that he wished he had played with a more accurate passer at the start of his career.

“I mean, I felt like I would’ve been even more successful if … I don’t know, man … if I would’ve … looking back on it, I should’ve just been drafted by somebody else. Should’ve never went to Carolina. Truly, I just think Carolina was bad for me. It was a bad fit from the get-go,” Benjamin said.

“If you would’ve put me with any other quarterback, let’s be real, you know what I’m saying? 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. It just felt like I wasn’t in that position.”

Therefore, Benjamin, who was one of the four wide receivers drafted in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, said he believes he is the best receiver to come out of the class, which includes Odell Beckham Jr., Sammy Watkins and Brandin Cooks.

“I feel like I’m the best one that came out of that class! They were just put in better opportunities to have success. If you notice, at the end of the day, my rookie year I was the only one to get to the playoffs. Also, nobody else went to the playoffs. I’m the only one that helped my team go to the playoffs,” Benjamin said.

Also, Kelvin Benjamin finished his rookie season with 73 catches for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns. His only season going over 1,000 yards in his career. Would he have done better without Cam Newton?

In short, Benjamin in being salty.
