[BN] Blitz newsletter: Kelvin Benjamin joins Bills for his first practice

Recently acquired receiver Kelvin Benjamin practiced with the Bills for the first time Monday. He is expected to play this week against the Saints.

"To tell you the truth, I kind of really wasn't surprised," about being traded from Carolina, he said.

Interestingly, Benjamin said he noticed a Bills highlight of this play on the scoreboard during a Panthers game, which got him excited about Buffalo.
