Schefter adds that Benson is “almost healed” from his Lisfranc surgery he underwent back in November.
Benson, 30, has remained a fallback option for the Packers all along. He’ll likely require nothing more than veterans minimum at this point in his career, but could be somewhat effective for them if healthy. It will be interesting to see if Green Bay takes a running back at some point during the middle rounds of the upcoming draft.
We have Benson listed as the No. 30 player in our Best Available Free Agents list.
