As we zoom in closer to the new NFL season, the Panthers are geared up and ready to go all the way but there’s one former Panther who thinks different of the team.

Former wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin didn’t hold anything back when it came to the Carolina Panthers as a whole and particularly Quarterback Cam Newton and his passing abilities. In an interview, with The Athletic, Benjamin said,

“looking back on it, I should’ve just been drafted by somebody else. I should’ve never went to Carolina.”

The Latest Music, Celebrities and Interviews:

Benjamin was traded to the Buffalo Bills last season for two draft picks after struggling with the team earlier this year.

Panthers Tight End Greg Olsen took up for his teammates by responding to Benjamin’s comments during training camp this past Sunday, mentioning that the wide receiver was a good teammate and it sucks to be traded but Olsen disagrees with Benjamin making his feelings known to the public.
