Eagles deal 6th round pick for Arrelious Benn

Posted · Add Comment

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers shopped and shopped with Arrelious Benn and now they have found a taker for the wide receiver. The Philadelphia Eagles announced they have acquired the wide receiver in a trade. The Eagles shipped their sixth-round draft pick to the Bucs for Benn and a seventh-round draft pick.

Benn has struggled to produce with the Bucs, getting overshadowed as a rookie by Mike Williams. The Bucs selected Benn in the second round in 2009 from Illinois. In three seasons, Benn has 59 receptions for 862 yards.

So, Philadelphia takes a low-risk attempt to kick-start Benn’s career.
