Kelvin Benjamin is entering the final year of his rookie contract and has a lot to say about how his career has gone up to this point.
Benjamin, who was a first round pick of the Carolina Panthers spent his first three years with the team and seems to regret every single moment of it.
Benjamin was still traded to Buffalo and decided to open up about his time in Carolina in an interview with Tim Graham of The Athletic; Lets just say Benjamin did not hold back with his criticism of Cam Newton:
“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,” Benjamin recently told The Athletic’s Tim Graham. “I should’ve never went to Carolina. Truly, I just think Carolina was bad for me. It was a bad fit from the get-go.
“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 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. It just felt like I wasn’t in that position.”
Newton’s response to Benjamin’s comments:
“Hey, I ain’t going to go back and forth with him. I’m just going to work. You feel me? That’s all it is, you know what it is. Just work, baby,” Newton said in the video while walking on a treadmill.
