Bills Trim Some Dead Weight, Cut Benjamin And Holmes

ORCHARD PARK – With offensive struggles mounting, the Buffalo Bills have cut wide receivers Kelvin Benjamin, and Andre Holmes. 
Benjamin was having a dismal 2018 campaign prior to his dismissal.
In 12 games played this season, Benjamin caught 23 passes for 354 yards, and one touchdown. Benjamin also caught only 37.2% of passes targeted to him.
Buffalo picked up Benjamin in a trade with the Carolina Panthers in 2017 in exchange for a third and seventh-round picks in the 2018 draft.
Benjamin finished his brief 18-game tenure in Buffalo with 39 receptions for 571 yards, and two touchdowns.
In 2017, Andre Holmes signed a three-year, $6.5 million deal with the Bills after his contract with the Oakland Raiders expired.
Mainly a special-teams player, Holmes caught 13 passes for 120 yards, and three touchdowns in 2017 before landing on IR with a neck injury.
Holmes this season, had 12 catches for 157 yards, and five special-teams tackles before his release.
With Benjamin and Holmes gone, cornerback, Denzel Rice, and defensive-end, Mike Love, were promoted to Buffalo’s active 53-man roster.
