That’s it for Kelvin Benjamin
Well that didn’t last long. After only two days at training camp, the New York Giants have released tight end/wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin.
The Giants announced the move as well as the fact that they placed tight end Rysen John on the COVID-19 list.
Big Blue signed Benjamin after he attended their rookie minicamp back in May on a tryout basis. Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com says that Benjamin had a bit of a blow up with general manager Dave Gettleman and head coach Joe Judge during Wednesday’s practice.
As the Giants were warming up at the start of practice, Benjamin was off to the side speaking with Judge for an extended period of time. General manager Dave Gettleman joined the conversation at one point, and things started getting animated. At the end of it — after talking for 10 minutes, or more — Benjamin ripped off his helmet and walked off the field, Gettleman trailing him.
It’s now hard to imagine that Benjamin will get another shot with another NFL team after already being out of the NFL since 2018. The only reason the Giants even gave him a chance is because Gettleman is clearly fond of him after drafting him while the Carolina Panthers general manager.
