Buccaneers trade WR Arrelious Benn to Eagles

Over the last few days, dozens of NFL players have decided where they will call home this season. Wide receiver Arrelious Benn @ArreliousBenn's home for 2013 has been chosen for him. Benn was traded by the Buccaneers to the Eagles on Friday. He goes to Philadelphia along with a 2013 seventh-round pick. The Buccaneers received the Eagles' sixth-rounder this year and a 2014 conditional pick in return.
Benn, a second-round draft pick in 2010, hasn't exceeded 30 catches or 500 yards in any of his three NFL seasons.
This swap comes one day after Tampa Bay signed wide receiver Kevin Ogletree.

Fantasy Analysis:

Yes, Benn is a bust. But he has speed, and that works in Chip Kelly's scheme. That doesn't mean Benn will be worth a notice in fantasy drafts. Philly is stocked at WR with DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper, Jason Avant, Damaris Johnson, and now Benn. He will fighting just to make the team.
