In fact, things may have escalated.

The Carolina Panthers are kicking off their preseason with a visit to the Buffalo Bills, a game that reunited Benjamin, the former Panthers receiver now playing in Buffalo, with his old quarterback in Newton.

Remember. the Bills wideout blasted Cam in the media this week - essentially blaming Newton for all of his struggles in Carolina the past few years. "I should've never went to Carolina". It was a bad fit from the get-go.

When hijackers flew planes into the twin World Trade Centre towers in NY and the Pentagon, a total of 2,977 people were killed. According to Reuters , Saudi-Canadian trade consists largely of Saudi exports of petrochemicals, plastics and other products.

The comments that got the attention of Newton and plenty of other people - including Buffalo Coach Sean McDermott - featured this passage: "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. Charlotte NBC News anchor Nick Carboni posted Benjamin's ripping of Newton on Twitter. At one point, Newton motioned to Davis to leave before Newton, with his hands folded behind his back, followed Benjamin around the field.

It's apparent that Benjamin harbors much more frustration from the situation than Newton.

When Benjamin said Newton was an inaccurate passer last week, the quarterback didn't seem bothered by it.
