Panthers WR Kelvin Benjamin only did individual work during OTAs, but made several catches during team drills on Thursday. While it’s early in the process and Benjamin has rust to knock off, Benjamin’s work made a good impression on head coach Ron Rivera.
“It could be a good harbinger in terms of seeing Kelvin — I don’t want to say in top form — but pretty doggone good form,” Rivera said, via the Charlotte Observer. “He’s still got a ways to go in terms of getting in game shape. But it’s really good to see him moving around.”
While Benjamin's return to the team will provide them with a WR1 option, we did have a story this week about how the Panthers want to continue to spread the ball around and not just count on Benjamin. We think Benjamin is still a lower-end WR2 option this season.
