Arrelious Benn Signs A One Year Extension With Eagles
The Eagles traded for WR Arrelious Benn last week and today locked him up through 2014 with a one year extension to his current deal. Terms haven't been revealed yet, but likely it's just an extra year to keep him under team control should he begin to blossom into the player everyone thought he could be while still in college.
Benn said it was a move he was expecting and was happy it happened.
"I was expecting it. I'm not going to lie, I was expecting it. I wanted to move forward. I didn't want to be there."
So far, Benn has not delivered on the promise that made him the 3rd WR taken in the 2010 draft behind only Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas. He admits that he's not satisfied with the way things have gone so far.
"If I'm being honest with you, I don't like my career," Benn said today. "I've got to stay healthy. I haven't stayed healthy. I've had a problem with injuries. When I was healthy and out there, I made plays. I was consistent. But the big thing for me is to stay healthy. It's no secret for me, I know that. I'm going to be honest with myself. Just come in here and do what I've got to do."
