Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin had a bit of scrutiny surrounding him this offseason when HC Ron Rivera suggested that he may have been a bit overweight at OTAs.
It all really began when Benjamin dealt with a hamstring injury. Fortunately for Panthers fans and the team, the second-year wide receiver looks poised and ready to make some noise in 2015, according to David Newton of ESPN.
“I'm looking to go full when we go into camp," Benjamin told ESPN. “I’m feeling good. I’m looking forward to it. I’m excited."
When speaking about his weight, he also explained that it's just fine.
“I’m not on the scale," he said. “But I’m playing weight."
We noted Benjamin got off to a strong start last year before finishing as the #42 WR following last year's Week 12 bye. The calling out of the weight issue may be in part to avoid a similar fall off this season. But it seems like he's got things under control heading into camp. We rank Benjamin 17th on our WR list making him a solid WR2 option.
