’Noles in the NFL: Week 9

A new home for Kelvin Benjamin.

NFL: Buffalo Bills at New York Jets Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

Kelvin Benjamin is the newest member of the Buffalo Bills.

This year’s NFL trade deadline was crazy, with the Patriots sending Jimmy Garroppolo to San Francisco and Jay Ajayi going from Miami to Philadelphia. Benjamin saw himself get traded from Carolina to the Buffalo Bills and joining former Florida State teammate Nick O’Leary.

While he was inactive this week as he learns the offense, Benjamin should become a big part of the Bills’ offense. Buffalo traded away Sammy Watkins earlier this year and they could use a new No. 1 receiver for quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

With the increased production that O’Leary is getting at tight end, it might not be out of the question to see two former FSU standouts starting in Buffalo this season.
