Freeman Speaks Of Hungry BennOctober 19th, 2012
The forgotten man of the Bucs’ receiving corps, Arrelious Benn, seems to be spiraling to depths unwanted for a high second-round draft pick in 2010, arguably the deepest draft of the modern era.
Benn has four catches for 26 yards this season and his kick return days may by numbered. Tiquan Underwood clearly has leap-frogged him on the depth chart. Even the Benn’d around wasn’t called against the Chiefs.
But hold on, says Josh Freeman. Benn is a beast lurking under the broiling sun of the practice field.
“A guy that honestly I think is going to come on huge for us, Arrelious Benn, you know, they’ve been mixing him in a little bit, but I’d look for a, down the road, big things from that kid. He’s tearing it up. He’s hungry,” Freeman said last night on WDAE-AM 620.
Freeman was unprompted when talking about Benn, but Joe’s not seeing how Benn is going to get much action barring an injury in the receiving corps.
When you add up the Bucs’ many offensive weapons, Benn just doesn’t rank that high.
