Panthers Trade Kelvin Benjamin to Bills
Midway through the 2017 season, the Panthers traded Benjamin, almost out of the blue, to the Bills for a pair of draft picks ( a third and seventh rounder). The move was puzzling, to say the least, as Benjamin was undoubtedly the team’s best wide receiver. His absence the rest of the season altered Carolina’s offense, and not for the better. The Panthers managed to finish the season 11-5, only to lose 31-26 in the wild-card round against the Saints. In a game that close, Benjamin certainly could have been a difference maker.
