Kelvin Benjamin was a swing and a miss with the Bills.
“We stepped up to the plate and took a swing. Some of those are going to work and some of them aren’t, but the only way you get a hit is if you take a swing,” said Sean McDermott Wednesday.
It’s safe to say the Bills struck out on Benjamin.
Brandon Beane sent a third round pick to the Panthers last season in hopes of adding a big wide receiver target to Buffalo’s offense.
The only thing that was ‘big’ with Benjamin were the headaches.
Benjamin constantly had his effort question this season and saw his snaps decline as younger wide receivers emerged.
“The important thing for us is we keep taking swings,” said McDermott.
The 6’5” wide out caught only 40 passes and two touchdowns in 19 games with the Bills.
“Just as important for us, I believe, is when things are no longer right for our football team and the vision we’re trying to chase that we move forward,” added McDermott. “That’s what we did.”
