The Eagles traded for that big wide receiver fans have been demanding the past few years. It's just that he doesn't come with the pedigree every expected. Arrelious Benn (6-foot-2, 220 pounds) and a seventh-round pick were acquired from Tampa Bay in exchange for a sixth-round pick and a conditional selection next year. Benn, 24, had just four catches last season. DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin figure to be focal points in Chip Kelly's offense. That likely leaves Benn competing with Jason Avant, Riley Cooper and Damaris Johnson for playing time with the Eagles.
