Bills trade CB Seymour for Panthers’ WR Clay, 2019 pick

Looking for another wide receiver, Bills general manager Brandon Beane turned to his former club.

The Bills have traded cornerback Kevon Seymour to Carolina in exchange for wide receiver Kaelin Clay and the Panthers’ 20197th-round pick.

Beane, of course, was the Panthers' assistant general manager before becoming the GM in Buffalo earlier this year.

Seymour, a 2016 sixth-round pick, had until very recently been in a three-man race for the Bills’ right cornerback spot.

Clay, meanwhile, bring speeds to the Bills’ receiving corps and special teams unit and could potentially be a downfield threat now that he’s healthy.

The 25-year-old, who signed with Carolina in April, caught six passes for 127 yards for the Panthers this preseason. But he has yet to catch a pass in a regular-season game.

Clay was a sixth-round pick of Tampa Bay in 2015 and briefly spent time with Detroit and Baltimore. He averaged 10.6 yards on 23 punts and 24.5 yards on 14 kick returns for the Ravens.

Clay spent the 2016 season on injured reserve because of a foot injury.

Following Saturday’s wave of roster cuts, the Bills’ receiving corps currently looks like this: Clay, Jordan Matthews, Zay Jones, Philly Brown, Brandon Tate and Andre Holmes. (Walter Powell will begin the season serving a suspension.)
