The third-rounder the Bills sent to the Panthers is an original Buffalo pick, while the seventh-rounder was acquired from the Los Angeles Chargers last July in exchange for quarterback Cardale Jones.

Consider Cam Newton among those confused by the Kelvin Benjamin trade.

An ESPN NFL reporter also liked the trade on the Bills end.

Newton, already suffering from inconsistent play this season, now will rely on third-year pro Devin Funchess and rookie Curtis Samuel to carry the receiving load as the Panthers chase the Saints in the NFC South. Carolina, at 5-3, is a surprising trade-deadline seller, and linebacker Thomas Davis didn't seem thrilled.

Thankfully, as Anthony mentioned in his post , everyone is OK, and the team has safely arrived in Chicago . The players were on a chartered Boeing 757-200 that was being operated by Delta at the time.

Benjamin, 26, brings a welcome size element and physical presence to Buffalo's receiving corps at 6-5 and 245 pounds. He had a spectacular rookie season in which he surpassed the 1,000-yard mark, and averaged over 13 yards a reception. Benjamin rebounded from his injury to register a 60-catch and 900-yard season a year ago.

This trade is hard to process because there are still great unknowns-the greatest of which is the health of Kelvin Benjamin's left knee.

Benjamin was taken in the first round of the 2014 draft by the Panthers.

He had caught a further 32 passes for 475 yards and two touchdowns in eight games this season with the Panthers before the trade, which came moments before the 3pm deadline on the east coast of the United States. That completed Florida State's ideal 14-0 season.
