Via Bleacher Report:
There were a number of things the Cleveland Browns needed this year in order to make a significant leap forward: an improved run defense, a true, franchise quarterback and play makers on offense. The first two are still works-in-progress, but the latter seems to be taken care of, based on receiver and returner Travis Benjamin’s performance in the first two weeks of the season.
In Week 1 against the New York Jets, Benjamin caught all three passes thrown his way for 89 yards and a touchdown and also totaled 10 punt return yards. He did even better in Week 2’s 28-14 defeat of the Tennessee Titans, with Benjamin catching three of four pass targets for 115 yards and two touchdowns and returning six punts for 154 yards, which included a 78-yard score.
All told, Benjamin totaled 269 all-purpose yards, most of which came on big plays. In addition to the long punt return score, he also had 50-yard and 60-yard touchdown grabs. Benjamin has been the dictionary definition of an explosive player in this young season.
