Cam Newton threw for 154 yards and one touchdown and Carolina’s defense didn’t allow a TD for the second straight week, helping the Panthers snap a two-game losing streak with a 17-3 victory over the struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
He said: “I saw him in the Toulon Under-21 tournament and we went for him, but we had a wage scale and we weren’t paying the sort of salary he wanted.
“Then Manchester United played a friendly against Sporting Lisbon and all their boys said to Sir Alex Ferguson, ‘You have to sign him’. But I agreed with not breaking the wage structure. I thought it would cause problems in our dressing room.”
The French boss saw one of the greatest football players in history slip through his fingers, and only realised what he had lost when it was too late.
In the 2003/04 season, his Liverpool came fourth in the Premier League and saw Ronaldo leading Ferguson’s Red Devils to the third place and to the FA Cup title.
Benjamin’s fantasy value gets a boost as a result of the move, but that’s not because his performance in Carolina was necessarily poor. After all, through eight weeks, he was the No. 24 fantasy wide receiver using either PPR or non-PPR scoring, averaging 11.4 points per game in the former and 7.4 in the latter.
What Benjamin provides the Bills, and specifically Tyrod Taylor, is Cheap Houston Rockets Jerseys a monstrous target in the receiving game, as he’s one of the position’s Cheap Ireland Jerseys more sizable at 6-foot-5, 245 pounds. It could mean a small increase upon the 0.88 red-zone targets per game that Benjamin has averaged since the beginning of last season, resulting in a similarly small increase in touchdown potential. He was more of a low-end WR2 with the Panthers to this point, but is now a locked-in WR2.
