Bucs Trade Arrelious BennMarch 15th, 2013
The Benn’d around play is no more. Arrelious Benn is headed north. The Bucs have traded their coveted second-round pick in the 2010 draft, arguably the deepest draft in NFL history, to the Eagles.
The Bucs barely got a cheesesteak back for the underachieving wide receiver, per the Eagles’ website.
Continuing a busy week of roster moves, the Eagles made a trade Friday, acquiring 24-year-old wide receiver Arrelious Benn from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In the deal, the Eagles acquire Benn and a 2013 seventh-round pick from the Bucs in exchange for a 2013 sixth-round pick and a conditional pick in 2014.
Joe will go on the record now and say Chip Kelly will never run the Benn’d around play, which covered the Raheem Morris and Greg Schiano regimes and was an insult to thinking Bucs fans.
Benn’s got talent, but it’s clear the New Schiano Order gave up on him — hard to believe with such a young player.
Joe has suspected Benn never had the mental makeup to a be the guy the Bucs thought they drafted.
Joe wishes Benn well. Obsessed with fashion, Benn can now conveniently shop in Manhattan boutiques on his off days.
