While there were originally some rumors floating around that second-year wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin looked out of shape, it seems that it may be time to put the rumors to bed.

According to David Newton of ESPN, Ron Rivera gave a rave review of Benjamin when he showed up for camp.

Not only did Rivera state that Benjamin was in "tremendous shape," as Newton explains, but he also went as far as saying that he was among the players to report in the best shape. It's great news to hear about Benjamin, who will likely head into the 2015 season as the go-to option in the Carolina Panthers passing game.
