Jordan doesn’t go into great detail on what Panthers left tackle Matt Kalil did to get under his skin, but he does explain the things that helped the Saints win and how Cam Newton makes a uniquely difficult-to-defend quarterback.

This game, I ran hot. You know, when O-lineman do the extra stuff, right after the whistle, that extra nudge, that extra little push. You’ve played them already, two times a year for however many years they’ve been there. Even before [left tackle Matt Kalil] arrived, he was at the Vikings, and I faced him, so you know what type of player he is. He does his best job to irritate the hell out of me, after the snap, the extra push, and so [long pause] … I ran hot]]> 5273336 Thu, 16 Aug 2018 14:30:01 EDT Saints Wire
<![CDATA[PFF: Kelvin Benjamin NFL's top WR in preseason openers]]> Kelvin Benjamin might want to pretend that Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is on the opposing sideline every game.

Prior to Thursday’s preseason opener which the Bills lost to the Panthers 28-23, Benjamin made comments on his former team and Newton. Both were negative in nature and Benjamin said the start of his career would have been better off if he was drafted elsewhere.

Moments before kickoff during warm-ups, Newton approached Benjamin at New Era Field. Benjamin didn’t want to talk. Instead, he let his play to the talking]]> 5271460 Tue, 14 Aug 2018 11:57:02 EDT Bills Wire
<![CDATA[Luke Kuechly says Ian Thomas stood out in Panthers camp]]> Cam Newton, D.J. Moore, Greg Olsen, Luke Kuechly, Thomas Davis, Donte Jackson, Christian McCaffrey and Shaq Thompson.

And what of fourth-round pick Ian Thomas?

Some of the plays Thomas made at training camp did not get the attention they deserved but his teammate Luke Kuechly wants people to understand that Thomas played well, saying the rookie stood out on offense]]> 5271326 Tue, 14 Aug 2018 8:33:01 EDT Panthers Wire
<![CDATA[Panthers 2018 training camp: Notes from last day of practice]]>
Here’s a few notes from the team and the media on-hand.

It’s no big deal, but the last three days of camp were a rough stretch for Cam Newton. Both Saturday and Sunday he was picked off by linebacker Luke Kuechly and today the interceptions continued.

At one point, Newton was picked off three times in less than 15 minutes.

So in the last 13 mins, Cam Newton’s been intercepted three times – and it could’ve been four. Had a clean first week, but past few days have been iffy]]> 5270532 Mon, 13 Aug 2018 11:33:02 EDT Panthers Wire

<![CDATA[Thomas Davis says he'll attend Panthers games during suspension]]> Cam Newton likes to call Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis the Mayor of Charlotte. It’s only a joke, but Davis is so popular that he might actually win if he ever ran for the office.

Davis will endear himself to Carolina fans even more during his four-game suspension at the beginning of this season.

According to Morgan Fogarty at WCCB, Davis plans to attend the games using his own tickets.

IYMI: @ThomasDavisSDTM tells me fans will find him in the stands during his 4 game suspension. "…I know that you can’t really have access over there when you’re suspended, but I’m a PSL owner now, so I’m gonna go over there and I’m gonna attend the games, using my own tickets.”]]> 5269091 Sat, 11 Aug 2018 13:21:01 EDT Panthers Wire

<![CDATA[Panthers beat Bills 28-23 in first preseason game: Recap]]>
Here’s a brief recap of how things went in all three phases.

It was a short night for Cam Newton, Christian McCaffrey and the starters on offense. The real standouts were the young wide receivers. Curtis Samuel had a strong game in his first action since Week 10 of last season, catching all four of his targets for 43 yards. Rookie D.J. Moore also showed some promise and YAC ability, adding 75 yards on four receptions]]> 5268497 Fri, 10 Aug 2018 17:03:01 EDT Panthers Wire
<![CDATA[3 takeaways from the Panthers' preseason win over Bills]]>
It was the tense pregame meeting between former teammates Cam Newton and Kelvin Benjamin, not the actual on-field action which ensued, that took center-stage on Thursday night.

Although somewhat surreal, the scene had to have been familiar to anyone who has seen Benjamin play. He was true to form as his ex-quarterback approached him, struggling to create separation, taking clumsy routes, not using his hands too well and allowing his defender to body him]]> 5268496 Fri, 10 Aug 2018 17:03:01 EDT Panthers Wire
<![CDATA[Watch: Kelvin Benjamin dodges questions on Cam Newton confrontation]]> Kelvin Benjamin does certain things well as a wide receiver. Avoiding tackles and showing elusiveness usually isn’t one of them.

Apparently, it’s another story when he’s avoiding uncomfortable questions.

Just prior to tonight’s preseason game against his old team, the former Panthers receiver had a confrontation on the field with quarterback Cam Newton. While we don’t know what was said, it did not appear to be a friendly discussion.

When Benjamin was asked what happened after the game, he played dodge-ball]]> 5268359 Fri, 10 Aug 2018 16:21:01 EDT Panthers Wire
<![CDATA[Kelvin Benjamin complimented Panthers WR after preseason game]]>
The main story was Bills wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin’s ongoing feud with former quarterback and friend Cam Newton. Benjamin and Newton spoke on the field before the game in what looked like an awkward exchange. However, Benjamin still has some love for his old team.

He greeted his old wide receivers coach and several other players he used to work with. Benjamin saved his best compliment for young Damiere Byrd, though]]> 5268356 Fri, 10 Aug 2018 16:21:01 EDT Panthers Wire
<![CDATA[WATCH: Cam Newton, Kelvin Benjamin exchange words prior to kickoff]]> Kelvin Benjamin unleashed on his former team, the Carolina Panthers and his former quarterback, Cam Newton.

Following headline making comments Benjamin made, Benjamin said he would approach some of his former teammates, but not Newton on Thursday when the two teams begin the preseason against each other. Once word got down to Newton, the quarterback decided he had nothing to say, which he made clear on an Instragam post a day later. 

Perhaps in an unprompted manner like Benjamin, Newton clearly changed his mind. At mid-field prior to the start of the contest, Newton approached Benjamin while he was speaking with former teammates and coaches]]> 5268279 Fri, 10 Aug 2018 16:15:02 EDT Bills Wire
