The Buffalo Bills are making some changes to their offense. On Tuesday they announced that they were releasing two receivers.
30-year-old Andre Holmes and former first-round pick Kelvin Benjamin.

The changes to the offense don’t come as a huge surprise as the team’s passing game has struggled most of the season. What is somewhat surprising is that Benjamin is one of the receivers that was released.
Benjamin hasn’t lived up to his first-round draft pick status since his rookie year, but he is second in receiving yards this season for the Bills. The release is moving his name up the list of notable first-round busts.
