The player rep for free agent Travis Benjamin said Wednesday he's "optimistic" the Browns and Benjamin will come to an agreement.

Regardless of the optimism Benjamin's agent projects, he would be smart to take his client to the open market, where Benjamin and Marvin Jones will vie to be the top free agent wide receivers available once Alshon Jeffery is presumably franchise tagged or re-signed by the Bears long term. 26-year-old Benjamin's breakout season (68-966-5) occurred at an optimal time.
Feb 3 - 9:13 PM

Travis Benjamin caught 5-of-11 passes for 53 yards Week 17 against the Steelers.

Benjamin took hold of the Browns No. 1 receiver spot with four touchdowns in the first three weeks and never let go. Benjamin’s five touchdowns matched his career total entering the season, and he easily crushed his career totals in targets (125), receptions (68) and receiving yards (966). An unrestricted free agent, Benjamin said a deal to keep him in Cleveland was "75 to 80 percent" complete. He should return as at worst the No. 2 receiver to Josh Gordon, and that is only if Gordon is reinstated this offseason.

Travis Benjamin (ankle) was limited in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Week 16.

Benjamin was limited on both Thursday and Friday. His availability figures to come down to a game-time decision. Gary Barnidge would become an intriguing contrarian DFS play against the Steelers if Benjamin can't go.
Jan 1 - 3:57 PM

Travis Benjamin (ankle) returned to Browns practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Although he'll be catching passes from Austin Davis, Benjamin will be good to go as a WR4 for Sunday's finale.

Travis Benjamin (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday.

His status will be updated Thursday. Benjamin has 17 targets since Week 14.
Wed, Dec 30, 2015 04:20:00 PM

Travis Benjamin caught 2-of-5 targets for 20 yards in the Browns' Week 16 loss to the Chiefs.

He caught the final pass of the game, a 12-yard completion down to the 18-yard line with the score 17-13 and nine seconds left on the clock, but Benjamin was tackled in bounds, and the clock expired with Cleveland out of timeouts. Typical Browns. Benjamin has fallen off since Josh McCown went down. He'll be nothing more than a WR4 next week against the Steelers.

Travis Benjamin caught 3-of-5 targets for 26 yards and gained nine yards on an end around Week 15 against the Seahawks.

Benjamin started strong with a nine-yard gain on an end around and a solid gain on a screen pass on the first drive, but he disappeared as the offense sputtered. He will face another tough test next week in Kansas City. He will be a WR3 for that matchup.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 08:26:00 PM

Travis Benjamin caught 4-of-7 targets for 41 yards in the Browns' Week 14 win over the 49ers.

Benjamin saw fewer targets than Brian Hartline (10) despite Johnny Manziel starting. He didn't do much outside of a 24-yard catch in the second quarter. With Hartline expected to miss the rest of the season with a broken collarbone, Benjamin is the clear No. 2 pass-game option behind Gary Barnidge. Benjamin will be a WR3 for Week 15 against Seattle.

Travis Benjamin (shoulder) is active for Week 14 against the 49ers.

The Browns limited Benjamin in practice this week, but he'll play through his shoulder issue. Benjamin has potential for a big game with Johnny Manziel starting.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 11:51:00 AM

Travis Benjamin (shoulder) is expected to play Sunday against the 49ers.

Benjamin left last week's game with a shoulder injury but was back at practice on Thursday. Two of Benjamin's three 100-yard games this season have come with Johnny Manziel at quarterback. He'll be a WR3 for the first week of the fantasy playoffs.

Travis Benjamin (shoulder) is questionable for Week 14 against the 49ers.

Benjamin missed practice Wednesday before being limited Thursday. He practiced again Friday, but was wearing a red non-contact jersey, suggesting there's a decent chance he might not play Sunday. If Benjamin and Brian Hartline (hip, questionable) sit, Terrelle Pryor and Taylor Gabriel are next up.

NFL Network's Rand Getlin reports the Browns are working toward signing Travis Benjamin to a contract extension.

After locking Gary Barnidge into a long-term contract, the Browns are now shifting their focus to Benjamin. Speaking to reporters Thursday, Benjamin estimated the negotiations are about 75-to-80 percent finished. Getlin said there's no timeline for the deal to get done. Benjamin has played well in his contract year. So far he's caught 54 passes for 826 yards and five touchdowns.

Travis Benjamin (shoulder) says he'll be active for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Benjamin got in a limited practice on Thursday, and is good to go after tweaking his shoulder in Week 13. Johnny Manziel's presence under center is a theoretical concern, but Benjamin caught seven passes for 113 yards on 11 targets in Manziel's last start. He'll be an upside WR3 against the 49ers. Benjamin's presence dents Brian Hartline's brief WR3 appeal.
Thu, Dec 10, 2015 02:52:00 PM

Browns coach Mike Pettine said Travis Benjamin (shoulder) will practice on a limited basis Thursday.

He will wear a non-contact jersey. This practice gives Benjamin a chance to play, but it is not a given at this point. Taylor Gabriel (concussion) is also expected to return to practice Thursday.
