Kelvin Benjamin visiting with Kansas City Chiefs after clearing waivers
The Kansas City Chiefs are one of the top teams in the NFL and appear to be a serious Super Bowl 53 contender. It has been a bit of a surprising season for the Chiefs, but they are now trying to add even more talent to make a playoff run.
Former Bills' WR Kelvin Benjamin, who cleared waivers yesterday, is visiting the Kansas City Chiefs today, per source.

Benjamin has struggled in a big way this season and has failed to live up to the talent that many saw in him just a few short years ago. With the Bills this season in 12 games, Benjamin caught 23 passes for 354 yards and a touchdown. He is still capable of turning things around.
Standing in at 6-foot-5 and 240 pounds, Benjamin is a bit too big to be a typical receiver. Some have floated the idea that a team could try to convert him into a tight end. Perhaps that could be something the Chiefs consider across from star tight end Travis Kelce.
Patrick Mahomes is one of the front-runners to win the NFL MVP award this season. He has been putting up massive numbers, but the Chiefs are obviously trying to give him as many weapons as possible.
Benjamin may not be a guy that can take the Chiefs over the top, but it is worth seeing what he has to offer.
