The Kansas City Chiefs made a roster move on Friday morning, signing wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin.

Here are five things to know about the newest member of the Chiefs.

Over his 18 career games with the Bills, Benjamin totaled just 571 yards and two receiving touchdowns.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Kansas City Chiefs have signed Benjamin to a one-year contract. His production has decreased each season, and the Panthers past year traded him to the Bills.

His 73 catches are still the seventh-most by a rookie in National Football League history.

Benjamin missed all of the next season with a torn ACL and hasn't been the same player since.

Heading into his first full season with the Bills, Buffalo hoped Benjamin could step firmly into the role of being their clear-cut No.1 receiving option in the passing game, but he struggled tremendously to prove that on a week-to-week basis. He then was acquired by the Bills in November 2017 for third- and seventh-round picks in the 2018 draft.

Benjamin, who cleared waivers and officially became a free agent Wednesday, was cut for performance reasons after a lackluster second season in Buffalo. As if the Chiefs needed any more help stretching the field.
