Well, well, well how the turn tables Mr. Benjamin.
It’s been a tough year for the Bills Mafia. First their prize possession Nathan Peterman. Now? Hungry Howie’s favorite receiver has left Buffalo. Kelvin “BO BO” Benjamin was released by the Buffalo Bills this past week despite their already extreme lack of receiver depth. Benjamin just recently signed with the Chiefs, where he will fight for a starting spot at tight end, I mean wide receiver.
“It was a bad fit from the get-go. If you would’ve put me with any other quarterback, let’s be real, you know what I’m saying? Any other accurate quarterback like Aaron Rodgers or Eli manning or big ben- anybody! Quarterbacks with knowledge, that you know how to place a ball and give you a better chance to catch the ball. It just felt like I wasn’t in that position.”
This was a direct quote from early this past August, in relations to his 3-year stint in Charlotte prior to being traded for 2 draft picks (thanks buffalo!). For starters, I am unfortunately a Carolina panthers fan. You can check out my Meltdown Mondays and learn of my struggles. Before I get into this, I am not particularly all that fond of Cam Newton. He is inconsistent and personally, I don’t think he is a snappy dresser. Every post interview I am taken back to a 1990’s porno before HD.
Oh Bo Bo, you got your dream come true: A rookie QB and Nathan Peterman leading the charge on an explosive throw heavy Bills offense. You want the cretaceous dinosaur Eli Mannning? Ask Odell how that one is working out. Now, you find yourself being cut from one of the most stagnant offenses in the league. A new opportunity awaits you in a juggernaut Kansas. Maybe things work out, maybe they don’t, maybe you eat yourself off a roster spot, I don’t know.
Maybe this is a PR move by the chiefs, try to divert from the Kareem Hunt debacle, I know not. But if you think Kelvin Benjamin is the answer to your problems, then god help you. Tread carefully Andy Reid, BO BO has quite the hearty appetite. For starters, your team Is losing money effective immediately. No, I am not talking about that $8.5 contract that gets you 354 yards and one touchdown. Team meals… they just got a lot more expensive. Like all of us good folks at Officejockeys, we can eat. Guess who else can eat, my man BO BO Benjamin. There may not be any Bojangles around for him to indulge but Kansas City be eating! Check out Silent Riot’s article and tell me BO BO won’t be salivating at the mouth just thinking about that tasty treat.
At the end of the day, BO BO is a talented receiver. I’d take him back over alligator arms Devin Funchees any day of the week. However, Andy Reid must watch his diet or he will eat himself right out of Kansas City, like he did in Carolina.
