ESPN says Travis Benjamin has the best hands in the NFL

Move over Julio Jones. Take a seat Antonio Brown. Cleveland Browns wide receiver Travis Benjamin has some of the best hands in the NFL. This, according to Kevin Seifert of ESPN in a video segment on the website.

After calling out New England’s Brandon LaFell for doing his best to make people forget about Braylon Edwards, he notes that Benjamin has no drops, 575 yards and four touchdowns after being targeted 56 times through seven weeks.

Thought of to be a field-stretching deep threat, Benjamin has morphed his game into that of a possession-based slot receiver, being among the top 25 in receptions and top four in yards-per-catch (minimum of 30 receptions). The timing couldn’t be better for Benjamin’s breakout performance this season. The diminutive receiver is easily outperforming the $660,000 salary he’s making in the final year of his rookie contract. Assuming his productivity continues, he will surely draw major interest in his services should the Browns not find a way to get a deal done.

Bringing back Benjamin should be one of the more uncontroversial priorities for the Browns. Famous last words, we know.
