not sure you can demonstrate a causal link with those numbers alone, but they do at least corroborate what a bunch of us (including gettleman, rivera, and approved by JR) have said all along. KB would lose receptions simply because steve smith is a worthy receiver, but it wouldn't be a proportionate loss of receptions, as smith's lobbying for the ball is one of the biggest problems he caused during his later tenure here. kelvin benjamin has the potential to be a true number one receiver, and a dominant one at that. you don't sacrifice the development of a guy like that.
i can't help but wonder what happens when the ravens start losing games.
So what happens when KB starts "lobbying for balls"?
Never mind. I hate Wide receivers that think they're the best option on the field and stuff.
