Carolina trade Kelvin Benjamin to Buffalo for draft picks

Carolina trade Kelvin Benjamin to Buffalo for draft picks

Buffalo gave up their own third-round pick and a seventh-round pick in next spring's draft to acquire the big, physical receiver.

Make no mistake, though: This trade will not please Cam Newton, who has counted Benjamin as a close friend since he was drafted in 2014.

It was a last-second deal that was made just prior to 4 p.m. EST deadline on Tuesday afternoon that only brings light to how much the organization valued Benjamin in terms of his place in their future plans.

Former Florida State Seminoles wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin is changing National Football League addresses. Benjamin missed the 2015 season due to an ACL tear, and this season he is experiencing some pain in that same knee.

Bills receivers now rank last in the league in receptions (45) and receiving yards (594).

Buffalo still has five picks in the first three rounds of the draft. Both previously worked for the Panthers before being hired by Buffalo this year. This season in eight games Benjamin has 32 receptions for 475 yards and a pair of scores.

His best season actually came during his rookie year when he recorded 73 receptions for 1,008 yards and 9 touchdowns. He is under contract for the 2018 season for $8.5 million after the Panthers had picked up the fifth-year option on his rookie deal over this past offseason.

After last Sunday's win against Tampa Bay, Newton was complimentary of Benjamin, who was playing his first game in the state of Florida after the death of his mother.
