Eagles Re-Sign Arrelious Benn

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles-Minicamp
Three days after being cut, Arrelious Benn is back in the fold. The Eagles announced on Monday that they have re-signed the receiver.

The decision to release him was financially-driven. Benn was scheduled to make $1 million in 2014 and carried a cap hit of $1.1 million. The Eagles were hoping he would agree to a pay cut, and it appears he has.

The 6-2, 220- pound wideout was acquired last offseason from the Bucs along with a seventh-round pick in exchange for a sixth-rounder. He tore his left ACL during training camp and missed the entire season. The former second-round pick has 59 catches for 862 yards and five touchdowns since joining the league in 2010.
