Chargers' Travis Benjamin: Still in team's plans
With Chargers cornerback Desmond King emerging as one of the top return men in the league, Benjamin needs to lock down the No. 3 spot at wide receiver to have any shot at justifying his non-guaranteed $5.25 million base salary in the final season of a four-year, $24 million contract. The 29-year-old still seems to be a part of the team's plan at this stage of the offseason, but his spot on the 53-man roster won't be safe unless he agrees to a pay cut. Benjamin averaged 23.2 offensive snaps in 12 games during the 2018 season, catching 12 passes for 186 yards and a touchdown while adding seven carries for 41 yards. The Chargers may eventually release him if Cantrell, Davis or another young player appears ready for the No. 3 WR job.
