Coach Mike Pettine expects Travis Benjamin to be the Browns' punt returner.
In other words, Benjamin should keep his roster spot. A game-breaking returner in 2013, Benjamin wasn't the same last season as he returned from a torn ACL. The 2012 fourth-rounder has never had a significant role on offense. Aug 17 - 2:21 PM

The Chronicle-Telegram's Scott Petrak considers Travis Benjamin the early odd man out in the Browns receiving corps.

Benjamin is a seldom-used deep threat who must show he can return kicks to make the team. Last season, Benjamin disappointed as a return man, averaging just 21 yards on kick returns and 2.4 yards per punt return while grading out as PFF's worst returner. Benjamin is pint-sized at 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds.

Travis Benjamin caught 3-of-5 targets for 46 yards in the Browns' Week 10 win over the Bengals.

Both the catches and yards were Benjamin's most since Week 5. Benjamin has been an effective role player for the Browns this season, but especially with Josh Gordon coming back for Week 12, he remains miles from fantasy relevance.

Browns WR Travis Benjamin caught 2-of-4 targets for 52 yards in Sunday's Week 9 win over Tampa Bay.

A rotational receiver in Cleveland's offense a la Taylor Gabriel, Benjamin has big-play ability but plays limited snaps and sees limited targets. He will not be a fantasy option when the Browns take on the Bengals in Week 10.

Browns WR Travis Benjamin was held catch-less on four targets in Cleveland's Week 7 loss to Jacksonville.

Although Benjamin has made some critical early-season plays for the Browns on the field, the rotational wideout offers no value in re-draft leagues.

Browns WR Travis Benjamin caught all four of his targets for 48 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 5 win over the Titans.

The sophomore wideout has been a goat amongst Cleveland fans, but Benjamin stepped up in a major way in Sunday's comeback win. He caught a pair of fourth-quarter TDs, including a six-yarder to win the game. Benjamin is a rotational wideout in the Browns' offense, along with Taylor Gabriel behind Andrew Hawkins and Miles Austin. He does return kickoffs with Marlon Moore, but has lost punt return duties to defensive back Jordan Poyer.

Browns WR Travis Benjamin will return both punts and kicks this season.

The Browns are evidently convinced Benjamin is over his torn ACL. Benjamin has proven to be one of the league's best punt returners when healthy, but has returned only six career kickoffs. Even with the Browns' receiver corps amongst the thinnest in the league, Benjamin won't have a meaningful role on offense.

Browns WR/PR Travis Benjamin (knee) is participating in training camp.

He's recovered from last year's ACL tear. Benjamin is a 4.3s speedster who will return punts for Cleveland, and try to earn a sub-package role on offense.

Browns WR/PR Travis Benjamin (knee) expects to be "full go" for training camp.

Benjamin went down last Week 8. Benjamin is a mere role player on offense, but a difference-maker on special teams. He should get every opportunity to reclaim punt-return duties.
Thu, Jul 17, 2014 05:57:00 PM

Browns WR/PR Travis Benjamin (knee) is a candidate to open training camp on the active/PUP list.

Benjamin wasn't cleared to participate in OTAs this week and is still recovering from November ACL surgery. He won't be ready to return until training camp at the earliest. Benjamin will compete for the Browns' punt return job when healthy.

Browns WR/PR Travis Benjamin (knee) won't attempt to practice until training camp.

Benjamin tore the ACL in his right knee during a Week 8 loss to the Chiefs last season. This year, the speedy third-year man will have to prove his health to win a job as a punt returner and situational deep threat.
Wed, Apr 30, 2014 08:28:00 AM

Browns WR/PR Travis Benjamin (knee) is hoping to be ready for the start of training camp.

Benjamin is four months removed from ACL surgery and hasn't had any setbacks. When healthy, he'll compete for a roster spot on special teams and as a situational deep threat.

Browns WR/PR Travis Benjamin underwent surgery on his torn right ACL on Friday.

Benjamin's surgery reportedly went well and he's expected to be ready for training camp. Anything before that would be a bonus, according to coach Rob Chudzinski. For Benjamin's sake, we hope he can return to his explosive form. Although not a full-time wide receiver, Benjamin is a homerun hitter on punt returns and adds a deep threat element in the passing attack.
Fri, Nov 15, 2013 12:44:00 PM

Browns placed WR/PR Travis Benjamin on injured reserve with a torn right ACL, ending his season.

Benjamin was having a solid year as a return man, with his 11.7 yards per punt coming in fifth in the NFL. A one-dimensional burner at 5-foot-10, 172 pounds, Benjamin can ill afford any lost explosion. Provided he's healthy, the 2012 fourth-rounder will be back to compete for a roster spot next summer.

Browns WR/PR Travis Benjamin tore his right ACL in Sunday's Week 8 loss at Kansas City.

Benjamin needs surgery and is done for the year. His second NFL season ends with just five catches for 105 yards and 22 punt returns for 257 yards with a touchdown. The undersized yet speedy Miami product will be back to compete for a similar situational role in 2014. Davone Bess will slide in as the Browns new punt returner.
