Draft Scout Bene'' Benwikere News
10/12/16 - CB Bene' Benwikere, signed Tuesday after two-plus seasons in Carolina, said he was surprised to be released by the Panthers. Benwikere defended Atlanta WR Julio Jones for part of the game when he compiled 12 receptions for 300 yards. "Do I think it's fair? No," Benwikere said of his release. "However, I'm not the leader there. That's how things go around there. I really didn't have too much of an answer once I was leaving. They were just ready to go with the younger guys. They drafted three rookies, so that's what happens."
