The Kansas City Chiefs signed wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin to a one-year contract, taking a low-risk gamble that they can become the team that finally allows the 2014 first-round draft pick to live up to expectations.

Five weeks from today is Divisional Round week, and right in the middle of Watkins' new timetable to return.

Benjamin has had his struggles the last couple of season, but perhaps playing for a Super Bowl contender and his pending free agency will motivate him to make an impact. He caught 23 passes for 354 yards and a touchdown in 12 games for the Bills this season.

His 73 catches are still the seventh-most by a rookie in National Football League history.

Benjamin missed all of the next season with a torn ACL and hasn't been the same player since.

Watkins has essentially missed the last three games, outside of a token start and a few snaps against the Los Angeles Rams (his former team) in Week 11.

The Bills acquired Benjamin through a midseason trade with the Panthers in 2017, where he went on to catch 16 passes for 217 yards and a touchdown in six games.

The 27-year-old Benjamin was relased by the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday and had gone unclaimed on waivers.

This comes shortly after the Chiefs brought in Benjamin for a visit on Wednesday.
