Benjamin had been with the Chargers since 2016. Before that stint in San Diego/Los Angeles, he was a Cleveland Brown for the first four years of his career.
In his time with the Chargers, he played in 47 games, collected 1,460 yards and hauled in nine touchdowns. He only played in five games during the 2019 season. The Chargers put him on injured reserve with a quad injury, causing him to miss most of the season.
Travis Benjamin will become a free agent when the new league year starts. He is free to be signed by any team once it begins.
