In fact, things may have escalated.

Earlier this week, former Carolina Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin pretty much blasted his entire time with the franchise, especially Cam Newton and questioned his intelligence at the QB position.

Perhaps in an unprompted manner like Benjamin, Newton clearly changed his mind.

Newton however finished with the MVP award during the 2015 season when Benjamin wasn't playing.

Benjamin's comments with The Athletic brought the conflict into the spotlight. The receiver, who spent three years in Carolina, trashed Newton. If I would've. Looking back on it, I should've just been drafted by somebody else. It was a bad fit from the get-go.

Ricciardo was widely expected to sign on at Red Bull for another year but last week it was announced that he will instead join Nico Hulkenberg at Renault after penning a two-year deal, shocking many in the paddock.

"If you would've put me with any other quarterback, let's be real, you know what I'm saying?"

In today's National Football League, getting strong play at quarterback is one of the most important keys to a successful season. This meant, naturally, Benjamin and Newton on the field at the same time before the game. He responded on social media in his Instagram story.

"I ain't gonna go back and forth with him, I'm just gonna work", Newton said.

First the video. Then the responses, which weren't very kind to the Buffalo star, in general, although Benjamin scored a first quarter touchdown and jumped into the stands to celebrate.
