Philadelphia Eagles WR Arrelious Benn (knee) suffered a torn left anterior cruciate ligament in practice Tuesday, Aug. 6.
Huddle Up: A real rough break for Benn, whose 2010 rookie season also was cut short by the same injury to the same knee. Benn was acquired in an offseason trade with the Bucs and now will have to wait until 2014 to try to make an impact with his new team. In the meantime, the Eagles are running out of experienced wideouts with Jeremy Maclin also gone for the season with an ACL tear.

Philadelphia Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said WR Arrelious Benn's (knee) knee injury is not considered serious.
Huddle Up: With Jeremy Maclin (ACL tear) already feared lost for the season, the Eagles need this to be the case with the FA signee from the Bucs who left practice early Friday.

Philadelphia Eagles WRs Riley Cooper and Arrelious Benn may have to compete for one roster spot during training camp. Both are bigger receivers who can block and play special teams.
Huddle Up: Benn, a second-round pick of the Bucs in 2010, was the odd-man out with Tampa's signing of Vincent Jackson last year, and he'll now try to unseat Cooper, who has 5 TD catches in only 10 career starts.

The Philadelphia Eagles acquired WR Arrelious Benn and a 2013 seventh-round pick from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Friday, March 15, in exchange for a 2013 sixth-round pick and a conditional pick in 2014.
Huddle Up: Benn is another piece of Chip Kelly's puzzle, a bigger target to offset the speedier Desean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are shopping WR Arrelious Benn. Benn was a second-round pick in 2010.
Huddle Up: The Bucs are flush at wideout with Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams so Benn is superfluous, though with quality wideouts available both in the draft and via free agency there won't be a particularly strong market. That said, there are WR-needy teams who might be willing to throw a late-round pick at the Bucs for a shot at working with Benn; that's better for Tampa Bay than getting nothing if they were to release Benn outright.
