Kelvin Benjamin is truly a sight to behold.
In the latest installment of how terrible a teammate the wide receiver is, the Buffalo Bills wide receiver reportedly turned down quarterback Josh Allen's offer to work with Benjamin before their game against the Houston Texans on Sunday.
#Bills Josh Allen just asked Kelvin Benjamin if he wanted to work on routes pregame during warm ups.— Jenna Cottrell (@JennaCottrell) October 14, 2018
Kelvin’s answer: No
What player in their right mind turns down their teammate who is only trying to help them for the sake of the team? The bond between a QB and WR is extremely important especially because Allen is a rookie and is still building a connection with his receivers.
So far this season, Benjamin is second on the team in receiving yards (103) with one touchdown that he caught a month ago on Sept. 16 versus the LA Chargers.
Since joining the NFL, Kelvin Benjamin has:— Tyler Conway (@jtylerconway) October 14, 2018
- shown potential
- gotten fat
- alienated his teammates
- ripped his former QB as soon as he got traded
- refused to work with his new QB
- failed to live up to potential
So...basically exactly what I'd do if I were an NFL player https://t.co/5iLwPe6VUY
For the 27-year-old to turn down help from his rookie quarterback is a slap to the face. Benjamin doesn't have a good track record regarding relationships with his QBs (aka Cam Newton) so we probably shouldn't be surprised by this.
