KANSAS CITY [url=http://www.thechiefsclub.com/cameron-erving-jersey/]Cameron Erving Jersey[/url] , Mo. 鈥?Kelvin Benjamin went from catching passes from Josh Allen and Nathan Peterman on a Bills team going nowhere to hauling in heaves from Patrick Mahomes on a Chiefs team barreling toward the playoffs.Not a bad finish to a tumultuous week.Benjamin signed a one-year contract with Kansas City to finish out the season Friday, just days after the 2014 first-round pick was released by Buffalo. It brought an end to yet another disappointing run in which Benjamin struggled with one of the highest drop rates in the NFL.“I guess you could say I saw it coming,” Benjamin said after his first workout with the Chiefs, who are preparing to play the Ravens on Sunday. “(The Chiefs) came pretty quick. I came for a visit, I liked what I saw. I liked what I heard.”He liked everything about the situation.Mahomes has already proven himself to be one of the league’s most vibrant quarterbacks, and Benjamin called the聽Kansas City聽offense “dynamic.” He also has the support of Chiefs coach Andy Reid, who said he liked the former Florida State standout out of college and thinks that one more change of scenery might finally unlock the potential that Benjamin has been scratching at for years.“He’s been good against us, No. 1,” Reid said. “A big [url=http://www.chiefsjerseysproshop.com/mitchell-schwartz-jersey/]Mitchell Schwartz Jersey[/url] , physical player. You add him to the mix, he comes in, he’s experienced and he’s been a good football player at this level.”Reid said there is a chance Benjamin could be ready to play by next week, even though it will be a quick turnaround for a Thursday night game against the Chargers. But time is of the essence because the Chiefs could be without No. 2 wide receiver Sammy Watkins for a while.Watkins has been bothered by a foot problem for several weeks, and he aggravated the injury while pushing off in Thursday’s practice. An MRI exam came back negative, but the prognosis is unclear.Watkins has 40 catches for 519 yards and three touchdowns in 10 games.The 27-year-old Benjamin had a promising start to his career, catching 73 passes for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns as a rookie with Carolina. But he battled weight issues and problems with drops and clashed with several people in the organization, ultimately resulting in his trade to Buffalo last season.He had just 23 catches for 354 yards and one touchdown this season.The Bills released Benjamin when they decided to use the remainder of another disappointing season to look more closely at younger players. He was making $8.5 million in the final year of his contract and will be playing for a fraction of that down the stretch for Kansas City.But he could be playing for a Super Bowl title [url=http://www.chiefsjerseysproshop.com/deanthony-thomas-jersey/]De’Anthony Thomas Jersey[/url] , too.“By next week he should have a pretty good feel for things,” Reid said. “He’s in great shape. He’s a big kid, but he’s in phenomenal shape. And sometimes a change of scenery can be good for a guy.”NOTES: TE Demetrius Harris remained out of practice Friday with an illness, though Reid said it’s possible the backup could play Sunday. … The Chiefs signed OL Austin Reiter to a two-year deal worth up to $5.5 million, locking up one of their most versatile backups. Reiter has started four games for the Chiefs because of injuries. “For me, it just means keep doing what I’ve been doing and be ready to play,” said Reiter, who would have been a restricted free agent after this season.100View Gallery Gallery:View from the sidelines: NFL cheerleaders 2018Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports | Raj Mehta Kansas City Chiefs rookie outside linebacker Breeland Speaks had New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady nearly wrapped up by the goal line on a third-and-goal play late in the fourth quarter of Sunday night’s game. Brady pump-faked, and Speaks appeared to hold up from moving forward with the full tackle [url=http://www.chiefsjerseysproshop.com/laurent-duvernay-tardif-jersey/]Laurent Duvernay-Tardif Jersey[/url] , which would have been for a key sack.There was a defensive holding called on the play (the Patriots declined), which would have negated the sack anyway, but asked after the game, Speaks said he held up because he was afraid of being called for a roughing-the-passer penalty. We have seen referees calling any quarterback-related penalties especially tight throughout the 2018 season, so the reaction made sense.But NFL executive V.P. of football operations Troy Vincent doesn’t buy it, according to ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio.I’ve only gotten to know Speaks a little bit this year, but my gut tells me he would admit it if he was just flat-out beat by Brady on the play. The potential for a penalty had to be going through his mind, because how could it not?In my opinion, the rookie wanted to be extra careful not to spoil such a big game on a silly penalty in his first career start. Speaks later told old friend Terez Paylor [url=http://www.chiefsjerseysproshop.com/ron-parker-jersey/]Ron Parker Jersey[/url] , now of Yahoo! Sports, that he should have finished the play.The Patriots went on to win the game, 43-40, and Speaks learned a valuable lesson.

im aside for a few extra chats.“Everything is a little faster in the playoffs. That’s how things go,” Reid said.
