Kelvin Benjamin becomes a free agent

The Bills have decided to move on from Kelvin Benjamin. Is there still enough time in the season for Benjamin to be an impact player on another team?

Receiver Kelvin Benjamin was supposed to become a free agent in March. Instead, he’s a free agent now.

Per multiple reports, Benjamin went unclaimed on waivers, one day after being released by the Bills.

Benjamin, a vested veteran, has a base salary of $8.459 million. Benjamin was the right to collect the balance from the Bills ($1.99 million) as termination pay.

The Panthers traded Benjamin to the Panthers last year, in the fourth season of his career. He generated more than 1,000 receiving yards as a rookie, but he hasn’t made it to four figures since then.

Benjamin had 23 catches for 354 yards and a touchdown in 12 games this season, with 10 starts.
