Panthers trade wideout Kelvin Benjamin to Bills

Buffalo, off to an unexpectedly hot start this season, acquired wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin from the Panthers reportedly just three minutes before the trade deadline at 4 p.m. ET Tuesday.

In return, the Panthers will get a third- and a seventh-round pick from the Bills, the source said. This season in eight games Benjamin has 32 receptions for 475 yards and a pair of scores.

McDermott was the Panthers' defensive coordinator prior to this year, his first in Buffalo, so has a good idea of what he's getting in the big-bodied receiver.

In 40 career National Football League games, Benjamin has 168 catches for 2,424 yards and 18 touchdowns.

Benjamin will have a chance to prove he's a true No. 1 wideout with Tyrod Taylor and the Bills, who are struggling something bad in the passing game.

It is not known yet if Benjamin will be in the Bills lineup when they take on the New York Jets on Thursday night.

The Bills' wide receiver corps has struggled to make an impact this year after trading Sammy Watkins during training camp. The 26-year-old wide out notably missed the entire 2015-16 campaign due to a torn ACL while making regular-season appearances in 2014-15, 2016-17 and 2017-18. His Houston Texans are his pride and joy during the fall and the winter on Sundays, while he has the garnet and gold of his Florida State Seminoles in his blood. Despite this being a big splash for the Bills, it is also a risky move, as Benjamin's knee injury raises concern. He had been with the Panthers in the preseason.
