TRAVIS BENJAMIN RUMORS

Healthy Benjamin could help Browns

BEREA, Ohio -- Pass after pass in Wednesday's Cleveland Browns training camp practice went in the direction of Travis Benjamin. Not all of them were caught. Not all of them were on target. The first one Benjamin caught, though, went for a long touchdown. The way Benjamin runs, he can make a long touchdown happen at almost any time. The Browns need that. The Browns need him. Now...

Johnny Manziel completes bomb to Travis Benjamin

Training camp stats are for the birds, but I recently noted that I didn’t feel as if the Browns were successful going long in camp. Between Hoyer and Manziel, I just haven’t seen a lot of long completions challenging the back of the defense.

But the special-teams standout known as The Rabbit will draw double duty on game days.

Browns WR Travis Benjamin got fast by chasing rabbits

Benjamin adds threat to Browns' return game

BEREA, Ohio -- There's no question that Travis Benjamin has big play ability on special teams as evidenced by his 91-yard punt return for a touchdown in the first preseason game last week against the Rams. Benjamin said he knew he was going to score a touchdown once he turned the corner. "(I was thinking) just get in the end zone," he said. "I know if I can get...

Benjamin touts speed, craves opportunity

BEREA, Ohio - Speedy wide receiver Travis Benjamin made a strong but brief first impression in his rookie season with the Cleveland Browns. Benjamin can really fly.

Did Brandon Weeden call the 69-yard TD pass to Travis Benjamin himself?

I noticed an OBR thread linked on Reddit today that wondered if Brandon Weeden called his own play when he fired a laser to Travis Benjamin over the top for a 69-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter of the loss to the Redskins. The prior play, Trent Richardson missed an assignment that allowed Brandon Weeden to get blindsided violently. Weeden’s helmet came flying off and the assumption...
