  • BREAKING: Panthers Trade WR Kelvin Benjamin to Bills For Draft Picks

The 6 ft 5 in, 245 lb Benjamin was drafted in 2014 by the Panthers after an All-American career at Florida State.

The NFL had one more big trade left in it before the close of the deadline. For his National Football League career as a whole, he has registered 168 receptions for 2,424 yards and 18 scores over the course of an even 40 regular-season appearances.

Since hiring head coach Sean McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane, the Buffalo Bills have been hard at work reshaping the roster to fit their vision for the team.

The Bills tried to strike some gold in the offseason by bringing in Jordan Matthews from Philadelphia. This season Benjamin has 32 catches, third on the team behind rookie Christian McCaffrey and Devin Funchess. Tight end Charles Clay and running back LeSean McCoy are first and second in both catches and receiving yards for Buffalo.

The trade comes at a time when Buffalo has raised expectations by matching its best start since opening the 1993 season at 7-1.

If you're looking for answers regarding today's huge trade between the Carolina Panthers and Buffalo Bills, this story might help.

We can't say the move makes any sense for Carolina.

Benjamin missed all of the 2015 season with a knee injury.

The bigger question is whether Cam Newton is going to survive this season at this point.

Without Benjamin and tight end Greg Olsen not expected back from a surgically repaired foot for another month, Cam Newton is left without two risky weapons in his receiving corps.
