Social media reacts to Carolina Panthers trading Kelvin Benjamin to Buffalo

The Buffalo Bills acquired Kelvin Benjamin in a trade with the Carolina Panthers just before the NFL's trade deadline on Tuesday afternoon.

Buffalo gave up their own third-round pick and a seventh-round pick in next spring's draft to acquire the big, physical receiver.

This is the type of major trade that doesn't usually occur in the National Football League, but the deal reportedly happened just prior to the 4 p.m. ET trade deadline.

Reading between the lines, Hurney is talking about the redundancies between Benjamin and third-year receiver Devin Funchess.

Benjamin has 32 receptions for 475 yards and two touchdowns this season.

Bills receivers now rank last in the league in receptions (45) and receiving yards (594).

Benjamin is in his fourth season in the NFL after the Panthers drafted him in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Led by former Carolina offensive coordinator Sean McDermott, the Bills are 5-2, just half a game behind the Patriots for first place in the AFC East.

But Benjamin tore knee ligaments before the 2015 season and returned to something like his best last season, with 63 receptions for 941 yards and seven scores.

The man who once caught the game-winning touchdown in the National Championship Game for Florida State is now shuffling off to Buffalo. That completed Florida State's ideal 14-0 season.

Benjamin instantly becomes the top target on the team, which could help his volume, but he'll also have to learn a new offense on the fly, which isn't great.
