The Chiefs have completed two full games and most others without wide receiver Sammy Watkins on the field, and Tyreek Hill had his worst game of the season on Sunday in Oakland – seen from the production standpoint.
With Against This Background, The Chiefs have signed on former Buffalo Bills recipient Kelvin Benjamin for a free agent deal for the remainder of this season, said Adam Schefter of ESPN. The news of Benjamin, a former first-round NFL 2014 runner-up visiting Chiefs, broke Thursday on Schefter on Twitter. Benjamin also appeared in a Twitter photo taken on Thursday at Kansas City International Airport.
The deal, which the team has not yet announced, appears to be a low-risk takeover since Benjamin relinquished early in the week. Had a team claimed it, that team would be on the hook for the rest of his contract.
While playing his first quarterback at an historic pace in the first year, Patrick Mahomes has surpassed 4,000 careers, faster than any other quarterback in NFL history. The last month of the regular team includes a matchup against the league's top defensive team this weekend, as well as contests against the Los Angeles Chargers, who sit behind the Chiefs at AFC West, and a road game against the hopeful Seattle Seahawks (NFC).

Head coach Andy Reid should talk to reporters again on Friday afternoon. While Reid usually rejects any reports of agent visits, saying that General Manager Brett Veach always aims to make the list better, the idea Benjamin attended makes at least some concern about when Watkins might come back.

He was inactive against the Arizona Cardinals on November 11 and played only five snapshots against the Los Angeles Rams on Thanksgiving Monday night. He was again idle against the Raiders.

will be out there and we'll see what they can do, "Reid said as he spoke to reporters for the last time before training on Wednesday. "We'll just take it from there. It is not necessarily limited. They will be out there doing what they do, and we'll just see it. See how it works. Both are day by day. They're pretty close to the edge where they just have to go out and practice to see what happens.
End of the end Demetrius Harris did not participate in the exercise on Thursday. The Chiefs said he had missed the training due to illness, but he was also listed in the injury report with a knee pain.
A 6-foot, 5, 245-pound ex-exit from the State of Florida entered the NFL as an NFL 28th overall selection of the Carolina Panthers in 2014. He launched 15 games and registered 73 catches for 1,008 Yards and nine touchdowns as a beginner. He spent the 2015 season in the injured reserve with a torn left ACL, then released 63 catches and 941 receive routes in 2016. The Panthers exchanged him in October 2017 against the Bills for a pair of 2018 picks.
This season, Benjamin has only caught 23 passes while being hit 62 times. He recorded 354 points in 12 games. The Bills dismissed him on Tuesday and he ended the liberation.
Benjamin, who had been criticized by fans for gaining weight over the years, made headlines earlier this season after telling The Athletic in an interview that he would have had more success if he played with a closer quarterback than Cam Newton would have to start his career. Newton then confronted him during the warm-up before the game before the preseason game Bills-Panthers.
