I’m not sure anyone saw this coming.

Just before the 4pm ET trade deadline arrived, the Buffalo Bills swung a blockbuster deal to get them the wide receiver they so desperately need.

According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Bills traded their 3rd and 7th round picks to the Carolina Panthers for star wideout Kelvin Benjamin.

Benjamin had 32 receptions for 475 yards and two touchdowns through eight games this season.  The Bills play on Thursday Night Football against the New York Jets, so it’ll be a quick turnaround for Benjamin if he hopes to be on the field with his new team in week 9.
