Kelvin Benjamin on target for full return in training camp

The Panthers may draft a wide receiver at some point this week, but a rookie is unlikely to be the most significant addition to their 2015 receiving corps.

That honor is going to go to Kelvin Benjamin, who missed all of last season with a torn ACL. Benjamin has been making steady progress in his recovery from that injury and said Monday that he’s feeling excited about making a full return to football activities at training camp this summer.

“Oh I’m doing everything,” Benjamin said, via the Charlotte Observer. “I can’t wait to get to training camp. I’m looking forward to it.”

Benjamin expects to do individual work through the offseason program before ramping things up in a few months. The Panthers were able to succeed last season without him, but the prospect of having another big target for Cam Newton in the passing game is an appealing one all the same.

  1. Is there any way that team doesn’t go 19 and 0 last season if Benjamin doesn’t tear that ACL in training camp?

    Of course, it could be that his injury is exactly what forced Cam Newton to make such a leap as a passer. If Benjamin played last season, maybe Cam wouldn’t have been the MVP and the Panthers would’ve ended up more like 11 and 5.

  2. This will be a great addition to a team that could have used one more receiving threat last season. The offense was great most of the season but it never hurts to have just one more option. Hopefully Benjamin was working on his hands.

  3. Panther’s are demoralized and broken. Pictures of Superman reeling and pulling back from that fumble won’t go away. 8-8 next year.
