The Carolina Panthers have just traded Kelvin Benjamin, our #1 wide receiver, to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for 3rd and 7th round draft pick in next year’s season.

According to ESPN’s interview with GM Marty Hurney, “The Panthers were willing to part with him because it eliminates some redundancy on the field with the 6-foot-5 Benjamin and the 6-4 Devin Funchess, who has a similar skill set and now moves into Benjamin’s role as the No. 1 receiver.

Most Panthers players are now in shock over the decision.

What are your thoughts on the decision?
