Newton-Benjamin Connection going right along

Recommended Posts

David Newton is reporting that Kelvin Benjamin will be staying in Charlotte next month, right along with Cam Newton.  Both will be working on their craft, and their connection.

 

"It's a huge plus," coach Ron Rivera said of his franchise quarterback and star receiver spending time together. "It's an opportunity to develop the rapport you need to have success." 

Benjamin and Newton already have spent a lot of time together. Newton took the former Florida State star to his home in Atlanta during Memorial Day weekend to hang out on the lake, eat and play video games. 

There even was good-humored ribbing about Benjamin's Seminoles beating Newton's Auburn Tigers in the BCS Championship this past season. 

Benjamin chose to bond with Newton not only to learn all he can from the quarterback that will be throwing him passes, but to "stay out of trouble, do the right things." 

He's staying in Charlotte the next month to do the same thing. 

"I'm a rookie, so I've got to catch up with the older guys," Benjamin said. 

Rivera isn't complaining. 

"The more you get to know your teammates, the more you learn to believe in them and trust them," he said. "And that's important."

 

 

 

 

There was once a time when people were questioning whether Cam "gets it".  Not only has his natural born leadership skills evolved, but now his work ethic is being reflected in the effort of our new rookie.  I am telling you, ladies and gents, the future is bright!

A lot of great QBs are known for a particular connection with one receiver (Montana to Rice, Aikman to Irvin, etc).

 

Would love to see something like that develop here.

young to rice, elway to rod smith, jim zorn to steve largent (which actually sounds kind of like the relationship starting up between cam and benji), moon to carter, manning to harrison/wayne, brady to the open man who is where he's supposed to be.

 

speaking of zorn to largent....watch these two videos and tell me you don't see some similarities.
