Ian Rapoport of NFL Media is reporting that as of late last night, the Chargers had emerged as the “team to beat” for Browns WR Travis Benjamin.
Last we heard, the Falcons have inquired about him, but it appears as though the Chargers have made him the best offer up to this point.
Benjamin, 26, was taken in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL draft by the Browns. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2.577 million rookie contract and is in position to be one of the best available receivers in this year’s free agent market.
In 2015, Benjamin appeared in all 16 games and recorded 68 receptions for 966 yards receiving and five touchdowns. Benjamin has also contributed 324 punt return yards and a touchdown. Pro Football Focus has Benjamin rated as the No. 86 receiver out of 119 qualifying players.
