Kelvin Benjamin practices for first time with Bills, says 'time is now' to end playoff drought

New Buffalo Bills wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin was the main attraction as the team practiced Monday.

Benjamin, acquired from the Carolina Panthers at the trading deadline Tuesday, practiced with the Bills for the first time. Benjamin took part in pregame warmups Thursday before the game against the Jets but was inactive.

Coach Sean McDermott was grinning when he spoke about Benjamin during his news conference before practice. He noted that the team gave Benjamin the opportunity to return to Charlotte, get clothes and get organized, but he declined because he wanted to spend time learning the offense.

“Kelvin Benjamin put in a lot of work throughout the weekend and it shows his commitment to the team,” McDermott said.

And in what might be a warning, McDermott said, "If you want to go one on one with him, that's on you."

And when Benjamin spoke to the media, it was music to the fans hears on the playoff drought.
