Carolina Panthers Trade WR Kelvin Benjamin

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin watches against the Detroit Lions during an NFL football game in Detroit Sunday Oct. 8 2017

He had caught a further 32 passes for 475 yards and two touchdowns in eight games this season with the Panthers before the trade, which came moments before the 3pm deadline on the east coast of the United States.

Benjamin joins plenty of former Panthers up in Buffalo. Without Benjamin, quarterback Cam Newton enjoyed an MVP season as Carolina almost registered an undefeated year in route to the franchise's second ever Super Bowl.

But remember that Panthers GM Marty Hurney and first-year Buffalo GM Brandon Beane (a former Panthers lifer) are long friends.

However, if Newcastle can maintain their strength at home and make improvements on their travels, a top-half finish could beckon. That was to lead to the first of two promotions to the Premier League .

The Bills were equally short on targets, after trading Sammy Watkins earlier in the year and watching Anquan Boldin retire on them. The 6-foot-5, 245-pound Benjamin is a great deep ball threat and red zone receiver for Bills QB Tyrod Taylor.

In return, Carolina received a third and seventh-round pick.

Benjamin made an immediately splash as a rookie, when he set Carolina franchise rookie records with 73 receptions for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns and became close friends with quarterback Cam Newton.

Harris' family said the woman's boyfriend was a passenger in the auto and took control and steered it off the interstate. Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Gelle said the incident took place Saturday afternoon on Interstate 66.

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

The Bills will have a decision to make on Benjamin's contract for next season as he is owed a guaranteed $8.45-million but can be cut with no dead money. He had been with the Panthers in the preseason.

The third-round pick acquired by Carolina was the one Buffalo added along with receiver Jordan Matthews in a trade with Philadelphia.
