The Kelvin Benjamin comeback tour apparently was short-lived.

The Giants are expected to release the receiver-turned-tight end, The Post’s Paul Schwartz reported Wednesday.

Benjamin was seen speaking with GM Dave Gettleman and head coach Joe Judge before exiting the field following the first day of practice.

The 30-year-old signed a one-year, $990,000 contract with the Giants in May and was trying to resurrect his career as a tight end.

Gettleman took Benjamin in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft while with Carolina.

He last appeared in a game in 2018.

Benjamin has 209 receptions for 3,021 yards and 20 touchdowns in 61 career games.

The Giants have plenty of other options at tight end, including Pro Bowler Evan Engram, Kayden Smith, Levine Toilolo, and Kyle Rudolph — who the Giants signed this offseason, but is currently on the PUP list due to foot surgery.
