Lions Claim OL Caleb Benenoch


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Lions have claimed OL Caleb Benenoch off of waivers from the Cowboys on Monday. 

According to Rapoport, Dallas was planning to re-sign Benenoch this week.

Benenoch, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2016. He was in the final year of his four-year, $2.823 million contract and set to make a base salary of $720,000 for the 2019 season when the Buccaneers waived him a few weeks into the regular season. 

The Patriots signed Benenoch to a contract in September only to waive him a few weeks later. Benenoch was claimed off waivers by the Panthers and spent a few weeks in Carolina before being waived again. 

Dallas signed Benenoch to a contract a few weeks ago before waiving him on Saturday. 

In 2019, Benenoch has appeared in one game for the Buccaneers and drew the start.
