Carolina Panthers Not Concerned With Benjamin’s Drops


For the big plays Kelvin Benjamin gives the Panthers, the head-shaking drops still remain.

Benjamin had two drops during Sunday’s 34-3 win against at Atlanta, and Panthers coach Ron Rivera admitted there’s a little concern that continues to happen so late into Benjamin’s rookie season.

“Yes and no. You’d love to have made those plays, and part of it is the youth,” Rivera said.

Benjamin dropped what could have been a 40-yard completion from Cam Newton on the Panthers’ second series. Carolina would go on to score a touchdown on that drive, and on the next possession Newton looked to Benjamin on a short pass that Benjamin misjudged.
