REEJUS!

Where's Steve Perry when you need him? Dude loved him some Rejus Benn and hated Maclin Laughing

Meh pickup, he could get a look due to his blocking ability and size. Not a bad risk to take.

I actually like Benn. He's young and is likely better than anything well find in the late rounds. He showed some flashes the past few years with Tampa....

Will he play the slot? I think that's where TB used him but I'm not sure.

Not really a gamebreaker...but I think he could be prety good here. We got our big WR like Blah said.

I still would love to take Stedman Bailey in the third. Id be very content with our wr corps going forward if we did.

Young, big, and can block. He fits Chip's offense.

We moved back a round and are giving up a conditional 2014 pick, which I'm guessing is low, so it's not too risky of a move.

He hasn't caught more than 30 passes in any season, but 6-2 220 is his listed size.

Damn. With that 6th rounder we could've taken someone better. Hopefully he works out, but he's just a depth guy at this point.

He's a FA after this season, and is owed $630k for 2013.

Ugh.

We don't have a 6th rounder this year... Is it the Broncos one we own? The '14 pick better be some late pick.

Or you could have another nobody. Worth the risk, he's only 24 and fits what Chip wants in his receivers as a big body that can block. Look for us to target Da'Rick Rogers and Mark Harrison.

Liked him coming out of college, think he sucks so far in the pros but hes young, fits Chips system, and the book isn't entirely out on him. If he stays healthy he could likely contribute.

He has an awful game in any system. I highly doubt he makes the 53 man roster.

Whaaaaaaa? Surprise surprise, a move no one could have predicted. I think this move has less impact on the draft and more impact on who's going bye bye.

If we keep Benn and get rid of Avant, Chip and Howie should both be fired.
