Falcons Have Inquire About Browns WR Travis Benjamin

Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports that the Falcons have inquired about Browns free agent WR Travis Benjamin.

McClure mentions that Benjamin previously played for current Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan in Cleveland during the 2014 season. He offers plenty of speed and has returned kicks, so he could be a quality asset for a team like the Falcons.

Earlier in the day, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reported that Benjamin has “piqued” the interest of the Texans and several teams around the league.

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.

We have him featured in our Top 100 – 2016 Free Agents list.
