Chiefs sign Kelvin Ben­jamin through end of sea­son

KANSAS CITY, MO. >> Kelvin Ben­jamin went from catch­ing passes from Josh Allen and Nathan Peter­man on a Bills team go­ing nowhere to haul­ing in heaves from Pa­trick Ma­homes on a Chiefs team bar­rel­ing to­ward the play­offs.

Not a bad fin­ish to a tu­mul­tuous week.

Ben­jamin signed a one-year con­tract with Kansas City to fin­ish out the sea­son Fri­day, just days af­ter the 2014 first-round pick was re­leased by Buf­falo. It brought an end to yet an­other dis­ap­point­ing run in which Ben­jamin strug­gled with one of the high­est drop rates in the NFL.

“I guess you could say I saw it com­ing,” Ben­jamin said af­ter his first work­out with the Chiefs, who are pre­par­ing to play the Ravens on Sun­day. “(The Chiefs) came pretty quick. I came for a visit, I liked what I saw. I liked what I heard.”

He liked ev­ery­thing about the sit­u­a­tion.
