Pass catcher Kelvin Benjamin is a former Carolina Panthers first-round draft pick who simply was never able to make it to the next level in the game that he and many around the league are in love with.
Benjamin will get another chance in 2021, as Sunday it was announced by the New York Giants official website that the team has inked to a tryout with the team over the weekend and impressed the coaching staff enough to sign him to the roster.
The pass catcher spent the first two and a half years of his NFL career with the Panthers before being traded to the AFC East’s Buffalo Bills.
After the trade was made, Benjamin never returned to his rookie form where he caught 73 balls for 1,008 yards. He was not much of an impact player, as he was released by the Bills in December of 2018.
He went to the Kansas City Chiefs, but again did very little to make an impact, and appeared in three games with the team making two catches before eventually he was given his walking papers by Kansas City.
Now Benjamin is hopeful to make the 53-man roster in New York with the Giants as a player who can find a way to come in and make an impact.
