Not wanting to miss out on the party, the Carolina Panthers traded WR Kelvin Benjamin to the Buffalo Bills Tuesday afternoon in exchange for 3rd and 7th round picks in next years draft.
This is a perplexing move for the Panthers – who are only a half game behind the Saints for the Division lead. One has to wonder why a 5-2 team would trade away their best receiver.
The former 2014 first round draft selection has played in 8 games in which he’s caught 32 passes for 475 yards and 8 TDs.
The trade leaves them with a receiving core of Devin Funchess, Curtis Samuel, Russell Shepard, Kaelin Clay, and Greg Olsen.
