A former college football star has signed with a new team. After getting released by the Buffalo Bills earlier this week, former Florida State star Kelvin Benjamin cleared waivers and was free to sign with whatever team he chose.
Benjamin reportedly worked out for the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday. The team liked him enough to bring him in for the stretch run, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The NFL insider first reported the news that Benjamin will wear a Chiefs jersey for the foreseeable future.

The Carolina Panthers drafted Benjamin out of Florida State at the end of the first round of the 2014 NFL draft. He flourished in his first season with the Panthers, racking up over 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns.
However, since that breakout season he’s remained quiet and is now on his third team in two years.
We’ll have to wait and see how he fits in with the Chiefs high-flying offense.
