Buccaneers’ wide receiver Arrelious Benn was a 2nd round pick of the previous regime in 2010, but the Buccaneers fired Raheem Morris this offseason and replaced him with Greg Schiano. They also brought in Vincent Jackson to start opposite Mike Williams, pushing Arrelious Benn out of his starting job. However, at Buccaneers’ OTAs it’s become clear just how far out of his starting job he has been pushed. Benn, a disappointment thus far with just 55 catches for 836 yards and 5 touchdowns in 2 seasons, has been practicing with the 3rd team behind not just Jackson and Williams, but Sammie Stroughter and Preston Parker. Stroughter and Parker are more natural fits for the slots so it looks like Benn could be as low as 5th or 6th on the depth chart. If he stays there, he’d be a complete nonfactor in 2010, assuming he makes the roster. I wouldn’t rule out the Buccaneers cutting him at this point. He’s clearly not on good standing with the new regime.
