49ers WR Travis Benjamin Opting Out Of 2020 Season


Jeremy Fowler reports that 49ers WR Travis Benjamin is opting out of the 2020 season. 

Benjamin is the first 49ers’ player to out-out of the upcoming season. 

Benjamin, 30, 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 signed on with the Chargers in 2016.

Last offseason, Benjamin signed a one-year extension through the 2020 season that included a $3 million signing bonus and reduced his 2019 base salary to $1 million. 

He signed a one-year contract with the 49ers back in March. 

In 2019, Benjamin appeared in five games for the Chargers and caught six passes for 30 yards before landing on injured reserve.
