Last month during voluntary workouts, Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera noted that Kelvin Benjamin showed up “a little heavy.” When the WR appeared at Panthers’ OTAs, that heaviness was on display.

Note, this is Benjamin AFTER working out with the team for a period of time.
The 6’5″, 245-pounder walked onto the field looking more like 6’5″, 270, and needless to say, the speed wasn’t quite there.

On the bright side, with the Panthers needing to protect Cam Newton more this season, Benjamin looks like he could fit in nicely at left tackle.
