Arrelious Benn WR PHI 8 Months

Eagles placed WR Arrelious Benn on injured reserve with a torn left ACL, ending his season.

Benn is now tasked with returning from his second torn left ACL in four years. Although he's still only 25, it could be a career-killing injury for the former Buc. The No. 39 overall pick of the 2010 draft, Benn has just 59 catches in 37 career games. He's currently under contract with the Eagles for 2014, but it's highly doubtful he'll be back.

Coach Chip Kelly said he was "pleasantly surprised" by how Arrelious Benn (knee) looked in his first practice Sunday.

Benn is trying to shed an injury-prone label, make the Eagles' roster and help fill Jeremy Maclin's shoes all at once. He's a name to watch because he's more talented than Riley Cooper or Jason Avant, and has far greater size ((6'2/220) than Damaris Johnson. Benn started off with the third team on Sunday, behind the likes of rookies Ifeanyi Momah and rookie Russell Shepard.

New Eagles WR Arrelious Benn knows he's had a "problem with injuries," and acknowledges he's "got to stay healthy" in 2013.

"I'll be honest with you, I don't like my career" to this point," Benn said. "I got to stay healthy. I haven't stayed healthy. ... And when I was healthy and out there, I made plays, and I was consistent." Benn missed 11 of a possible 48 games with the Bucs, and was rarely 100 percent. He needs to show something in Eagles camp.

Eagles signed WR Arrelious Benn to a one-year contract extension through 2014.

Benn and a 2013 seventh-round pick were acquired from the Bucs in exchange for a 2013 sixth-round pick and a 2014 conditional pick last week. The 24-year-old is signed for just $630,000 in 2013, and he's likely just getting a bump up to the five-year veteran's minimum for 2014. Benn will compete for a roster spot this summer.

Eagles acquired WR Arrelious Benn and a 2013 seventh-round pick from the Buccaneers in exchange for Philadelphia's 2013 sixth-round pick and a 2014 conditional pick.

Bucs GM Mark Dominik didn't get much, but he did do well to get anything at all for Benn, who's been a near-complete bust since Tampa Bay drafted him with the 39th overall pick in 2010. Billed as a chain-moving possession receiver with run-afer-catch ability coming out of Illinois, Benn has been incredibly injury prone en route to just 862 yards and five touchdowns across 37 career games (24 starts). He'll battle for a roster spot in Eagles camp.

The Tampa Bay Times reports the Buccaneers are shopping Arrelious Benn.

A colossal disappointment since the Bucs took him 39th overall in the 2010 draft, Benn has managed 59 catches for 862 yards and five touchdowns across 37 career games, making 24 starts. Tampa Bay would lucky to get back a seventh-round pick, although Benn's $630,000 base salary does figure to help his trade market.
