Once inseparable friends and teammates, Cam Newton and Kelvin Benjamin have become estranged lately.

Benjamin made some surprisingly harsh comments about Newton and the Panthers in an interview with the Athletic recently. Before their preseason matchup, Newton met Benjamin on the field to talk it out, but it appeared Benjamin had no interest in mending fences.

After the game, Benjamin dodged questions about what was said during the confrontation. Newton, for his part, avoided the media entirely.

Now, Cam is speaking out about his former No. 1 wide receiver.

Newton told Joe Person at the Charlotte Observer that he doesn't want to talk about it, but he wishes KB the best.

Newton gets a ridiculous amount of unfair criticism from the media for his behavior, so it's worth mentioning that he has conducted himself with absolute class throughout this entire unfortunate episode.

Maybe Benjamin has a legitimate beef with Newton, but right now Cam certainly looks like the better man.
