According to Field Yates of ESPN, free agent WR/TE Kelvin Benjamin has been suspended for the first two weeks of the season.
“Free agent TE/WR Kelvin Benjamin has been suspended for the first two weeks of the season,” Yates reported. “He started camp with the Giants. Free agent G DJ Fluker has been suspended for the first six weeks of the season. He spent camp with the Dolphins.”
The 30-year-old was signed by the New York Giants to play tight end this summer, but he was later released to due an issue with his playing weight.
After his release, he went off on head coach Joe Judge.
“I have a perspective on Joe Judge,” Benjamin said. “He’s not a coach that can ever win a Super Bowl because he sits there and cusses all day. You can tell he’s one-sided about everything. He’s a know-it-all. That’s not how it’s supposed to work. We all can learn from each other. We’re all humans at the end of the day. The true colors will come out.”
In 2018, Benjamin appeared in 15 games for the Bills and Chiefs and caught 25 passes for 380 yards receiving and one touchdown.
