Kelvin Benjamin a big-boned headache for Texans

Print

News for all you Belly Truthers out there: Kelvin Benjamin looks good tonight in Charlotte.

The fourth-year wide receiver had a pair of catches in the first half against the Texans, including a go-up-and-get-it touchdown reception that brought back memories of Benjamin's rookie season with the Panthers back in 2013. Have a look:

Benjamin reported to spring camp north of 260 pounds, prompting Panthers coach Ron Rivera to comment that his No. 1 wideout looked "a little heavy". An unflattering image of Benjamin went viral and, um, fed into that narrative. Rivera told reporters earlier this month that that Benjamin reported to training camp at 243 pounds.

Based on what we've seen tonight, Benjamin appears to have found his happy weight.
