    I wouldn't mind a flyer on Kelvin. Not a big fan, but the redzone eh?

    Benjamin is making half a million each week, so it’s $2 million to claim him off waivers for the last 4 weeks. I’d certainly pass on that.

    Holmes was a PS player for us way back. I liked his game in Oakland but it's clear now he'll never be a real player. As for Benjamin...no thanks. Would be more of a Hollister upgrade than anything else and comes with baggage.

    I wouldn't mind him as a red zone target or even try him out as a receiving tight end. He probably wishes he never forced his way out of Carolina. He's been horrible with the Bills.

    Maybe the Kraft group needs some people to sell food and drinks during games. But I wouldn't trust Benjamin not to eat half of that himself.

    One things for certain I don't think Benjamin have learned a NFL Offense yet and he's definitely not learning ours.

    dude has a 30% catch rate. He wouldn't last a single practice.

    I could see a Team like the Texans going after him they like those Tall Fast Receivers. Also Miami is depleted at WR so they could claim him.

    Benjamin was not interested in taking extra reps with the QBs there, especially not Allen. In other words, he didn't seem to care very much.

    I bet he ends up in Carolina.

    I don’t know man, he seemed to burn a lot of bridges (with Cam) after leaving.

    Our Andre Holmes! He'll find a job, he and Kamar Aiken are a resilient bunch!

    I don't even think Benjamin could play tight end. Dude is slower than some of the Big receivers who have a tight end designation.

    I might give Benjamin a sniff as a move TE to give us some size in the red zone but it would be an uphill battle to not only change positions this late in the season, but to do it in the hardest offense in football. As a WR, he’s toast.

    The amount owed for what, a few games might scare me off. Plus who knows if he can pick up the offense at a josh Gordon type pace.

    Can he block? Well enough to replace Allen?

    lol hell no! Gronk and Allen are like the premiere blocking tight ends in the league right now. Every game lately I've been watching tight ends, and so far, all of them either suck or are below average. Small sample size though. But so far it's not looking promising which is pretty sad.
