Draft Scout *Arrelious Benn News
10/17/16 - WR Arrelious Benn had just one catch in Sunday's game, but it might have been the biggest of his career and was certainly the most important one for the Jaguars. It was a 51-yard reception on which Benn made a sliding catch, then got up and ran to the end zone for what proved to be the winning score. It was the first touchdown for Benn in five years dating to 2011 when he was with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
10/16/16 - WR Arrelious Benn's 51-yard touchdown catch with 2:49 remaining in the fourth quarter lifted the Jacksonville Jaguars to a come-from-behind 17-16 win over the Bears on Sunday at Soldier Field.
Benn's only catch of the day -- his first since 2012 -- provided the Jaguars (2-3) with their first lead after falling behind the Bears 13-0. Jason Myers followed up Benn's first touchdown since 2010 with an extra point that gave the Jaguars the one-point victory after they had failed to score for the first three quarters.
"There was time still on the clock and (we had to) just keep playing," Benn said. "Unless that clock gets down to (all) zeroes, that's when it's over. But we just keep playing."
09/04/16 - WR Arrelious Benn was the recipient of good news on Sunday when the Jaguars decided to place offensive tackle Josh Wells on injured reserve. Wells had surgery to repair his injured thumb in early August and the recovery period had been slow for Wells. Benn was cut by the team on Saturday but with Wells going on IR, it opened up a roster spot that the team filled with Benn.
08/31/16 - WR Arrelious Benn has one last opportunity to show Jaguar coaches that he should be included in the mix of wide receivers that make the team. Benn may be the second-fastest player of the group (behind only Marqise Lee) and has more experience than some others with 37 games (24 starts) in three seasons with Tampa Bay. What Benn is fighting is the fact that he spent the entire 2013, 2014 and 2015 seasons on injured reserve with various injuries.
08/10/16 - WR Arrelious Benn caught a 70-yard pass from backup quarterback Chad Henne on the final play of Monday's practice. It was supposed to be a two-minute drill, but Benn caught a short pass near the sideline, broke away from CB Aaron Colvin and went the distance to end the Jaguars' practice session.
