Kelvin Benjamin claimed yesterday he wanted out of Carolina because he wasn't getting the looks deserved by a #1 receiver.

Panthers Expected to Sign Da'Norris Searcy

Carolina is currently working on signing Da'Norris Searcy, former Tennessee Titan and Buffalo Bill, to help bolster that defensive backfield. Searcy signed a substantial contract with Tennessee in 2015, after thriving in a Buffalo Bills defense that was churning out top-end safeties year after year.
