Giants sign WR/TE Kelvin Benjamin, RB Corey Clement

The New York Giants announced the signings Sunday of former first-round wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin and former Philadelphia Eagles running back Corey Clement.

Both veteran free agents tried out for the team at this weekend’s rookie minicamp, with Benjamin working out primarily as a tight end. Both received one-year deals.

Benjamin, 30, was drafted in the first round (28th overall) by Carolina in 2014 and caught 73 passes for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns as a rookie that season.

His career went south after that and he hasn’t appeared in an NFL game since 2018. Benjamin’s career totals include 209 receptions for 3,021 yards and 20 touchdowns in 61 games (52 starts) with the Panthers, Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs.

“In terms of Benjamin working a different position today, we’re going to work different guys at a variety of things right now,” Giants coach Joe Judge said on Friday. “He’s a big guy (6-5, 245). He’s always been a big receiver. He’ll work receiver. He’s working a little bit flex tight end as well. I wouldn’t really pin him down to any one position at this point. We’re going to use the weekend to move him around to different spots and see how it works out.”

Giants general manager Dave Gettleman served in the same role with the Panthers when they drafted Benjamin.

Clement, a hero of Philadelphia’s Super Bowl LII victory against the New England Patriots, appeared in 46 regular-season games over the past four years with the Eagles. He has rushed for 655 yards and seven touchdowns and has 37 catches for 340 yards and two scores.

Clement, 26, caught four passes for 100 yards and a touchdown in the 41-33 victory against the Patriots in SB LII.

The Giants also waived running back Jordan Chunn and tight end Nate Wieting.
