At about 7 p.m. Arrowhead Time on a quiet Thursday night, ESPN’s Adam Schefter broke news that the Kansas City Chiefs had struck a one-year deal with free-agent wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin. Benjamin began his career with the Carolina Panthers but was traded to the Buffalo Bills last season. The Bills cut Benjamin earlier this week.

The speculation began when Matt Derrick of Chiefs Digest thought he spotted Benjamin at the Chiefs’ practice facility Thursday afternoon...

It was later confirmed Derrick was right, via Schefter. Then this unconfirmed report came through, saying that Benjamin stopped at a Kansas City staple on his tour.

After the signing was official, again, via Schefter, there were rapid reactions...

...and jokes.

Old friend His Dirkness posted a stat worth pondering...

...and one final thought on the night from a loyal Chiefs fan and AP reader:

As is always the case in the NFL, time will tell.
