Buffalo Bills acquire Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin

Buffalo traded a 3rd and 7th round pick for Benjamin, according to Schefter and Ian Rapoport.

Benjamin is the team's leading receiver with 475 yards and two touchdowns on 32 catches with the Panthers this season.

Benjamin was picked 28th in the 2014 draft by the Panthers and proved to be a shrewd pick in his rookie season, when he caught 73 passes for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns.

The Bills' wide receiver corps has struggled to make an impact this year after trading Sammy Watkins during training camp. For his National Football League career as a whole, he has registered 168 receptions for 2,424 yards and 18 scores over the course of an even 40 regular-season appearances.

Benjamin missed the 2015 season with a torn ACL.

Bills receivers now rank last in the league in receptions (45) and receiving yards (594). So far this season he has scored twice with the Panthers.

The MIAA and its member schools congratulate all golfers on their performance at the recent fall sectional team golf tournament. Nash countered Riordan's account by telling WCVB she "wasn't aware that if I won I wouldn't get the title or the trophy".

Benjamin joins plenty of former Panthers up in Buffalo.

Buffalo is 5-2 and preparing to play at the New York Jets on Thursday night. That completed Florida State's flawless 14-0 season. And for the Bills, they get another receiver to team up with the recently acquired Jordan Matthews on offense.

So, why would the Panthers deal their best wide receiver?

With Benjamin gone, it opens up more opportunities for smaller receiving options like Curtis Samuel, Russell Shepard and Christian McCaffrey.

Greg Olsen will be eligible to return from IR shortly, and No. 2 tight end Ed Dickson has stepped up recently.
