This might not be a popular choice for the Houston Texans, but with Kelvin Benjamin with the Buffalo Bills, there should still be belief that there is some untapped potential with the soon-to-be free agent wide receiver, and maybe Bill O’Brien and the Texans offensive coaching staff could bring that potential to life.
Benjamin is with his second team in five NFL seasons already, but with the Bills this season he has just 14 receptions for 214 yards and one touchdown. Benjamin is a much better player than those numbers in seven games this season. Plus, Benjamin has been targeted 37 times, catching less than half of those targets.
Even though he’s been there just this season, Benjamin needs a change. With the Texans, he would have a role to follow and wouldn’t have the top defensive coverage as that always goes to DeAndre Hopkins in each and every game. The Texans could possibly get Benjamin for not a steep price, and like others he is a free agent at the end of this season, so there would be no long-term commitment if things don’t turn out well.
