Kelvin Benjamin prepares for NFL games on his own terms, apparently.
The Buffalo Bills wide receiver was on the NRG Stadium field Sunday getting ready for a Week 6 tilt against the Houston Texans when rookie quarterback Josh Allen apparently approached Benjamin to ask if he could run a few routes to help him warm up.
Here’s how that went, according to WHAM-13’s Jenna Cottrell:
At least he’s honest?
Benjamin’s blunt answer quickly made the rounds on Twitter, where many criticized the 27-year-old for blowing off his rookie QB.
Others, such as former NFL linebacker Emmanuel Acho, urged folks not to read into a quick moment that happened well before the game began.
Of course, it’d be easier to let Benjamin off the hook if he was having a better season. The Bills wideout — who was involved in some pregame drama with Cam Newton earlier in the preseason — has just eight catches for a combined 103 yards through five games, and his 30.8 catch percentage is the second-lowest in the entire NFL among qualified pass-catchers.
Basically, it sounds like Benjamin could use the extra practice. Maybe he’s putting in the work some other time.
