Buffalo Bills wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin took a few shots at his former quarterback on the Carolina Panthers Luis Tiant Jersey , Cam Newton, during an interview with Tim Graham of The Athletic Friday night. On Sunday, Bills head coach Sean McDermott addressed Benjamin's comments:Matthew Fairburn @MatthewFairburnSean McDermott on Kelvin Benjamin's comments to @ByTimGraham: "There's a time and a place for comments like that and this was not one of them." McDermott said he spoke to Kelvin and told him that's not how he wants his team to handle things.In his interview with Graham, Benjamin didn't mince words when discussing how his career progressed during his time in Carolina:聽"Looking back on it, I should've just been drafted by somebody else. 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 http://www.eaglesauthorizedshops.com/authentic-josh-sweat-jersey , let's be real, you know what I'm saying? Any other accurate quarterback like [Aaron] Rodgers or Eli Manning or [Ben Roethlisberger]鈥攁nybody!鈥攓uarterbacks 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 appears to have replied to those comments on his Instagram story Saturday (h/t sports anchor Matt Harris):Matt Harris @MHarrisWSOC9Cam Newton鈥檚 IG story seemingly addresses Kelvin Benjamin鈥檚 remarks to the Athletic:鈥淚 ain鈥檛 gonna go back and forth with him, I鈥檓 just gonna work...鈥?https://t.co/v4BteGHsqiBenjamin also called into question his role with the Panthers, telling Graham he enjoys working in the slot in Buffalo, while with the Panthers聽"all they wanted me to do was line up at the X and take guys away from the play."Finally Cheap Ronnie Harrison Jersey , he said he "felt like I was on a team where they didn't believe in me no more" in Carolina.Benjamin had an excellent rookie season in 2014 when he accumulated聽1,008 receiving yards and nine touchdowns. But a torn聽ACL聽cost him the entirety of the 2015 season, and Benjamin has never compiled 1,000 yards or more than seven touchdowns in a season since.聽Last October, the Panthers聽traded聽him to the Bills for a 2018 third- and seventh-round selection, hoping he could provide the team with the dangerous weapon it lacked on the outside. In his first six games with the聽team聽he offered mediocre results Sonny Gray Jersey , catching 16 passes for 217 yards and a score.聽This season, the Bills will be hoping Benjamin,聽Zay聽Jones and Jeremy聽Kerley聽can provide the team with weapons on the outside, though on paper it doesn't appear to be a strong group. And it remains unclear who will be throwing them passes to begin the season.聽Rookie Josh Allen is a project, leaving AJ聽McCarron聽and聽Nathan聽Peterman聽to battle for the starting position, at least to start the season. Unlike Newton Youth Jordan Akins Jersey , neither of those players has ever appeared in a Pro Bowl, won an MVP award or been named a first-team All-Pro.聽In other words, many of the frustrations Benjamin harbored toward Newton may end up traveling with him to Buffalo. The Montreal Canadiens have acquired right winger Joel Armia, goaltender Steve Mason and a pair of draft picks from the Winnipeg Jets for defense prospect Simon Bourque.

The draft picks were a seventh-round selection in 2019 and a fourth-rounder in 2020.

Armia posted career highs of 12 goals, 17 assists and 29 points in 79 games last season and had a pair of goals in 13 playoff games. The 25-year-old has 26 goals and 58 points in 180 career NHL games.

Mason went 5-6-1 with a 3.24 goals-against average and a .906 save percentage in 13 games for the Jets last season. The 30-year-old has a career record of 205-183-64 in 476 games with Columbus, Philadelphia and Winnipeg.

Bourque had three assists in 46 American Hockey League games last season in his first season of pro hockey with the Laval Rocket. The 21-year-old was drafted in the sixth round in 2015.
