The Jaguars will sign wide receiver Arrelious Benn to a new contract before he can hit the free agent market, the Florida Times-Union reported Wednesday.

Per the report, the deal is for 2017 with an option for a second year. Benn played in 15 games for the Jaguars last season, catching five passes and playing on special teams.

A second-round pick by the Buccaneers in 2010, Benn spent three seasons in Tampa Bay then spent time with the Eagles but did not play in a regular-season game from 2012 until last year with the Jaguars. The Bucs traded him to Philadelphia in 2013 but he ended both of his seasons with the Eagles on the team’s injured-reserve list.

He has six career touchdown catches in 52 games, 24 starts.

    Great utility guy.

    And occasionally clutch WR – as per the win against the Bears this year. He provided us with one of the very few bright highlights of the season.

    Glad this is working out.

    “Glad this is working out.” That, right there, tells you everything you need to know about the h e double hockey sticks Jaguars fans have been through. You just read about a fan who is excited about Arrelious Benn. I honestly feel terrible for you and your fan base.

    Well, no one said “I’m EXCITED.”

    I’m glad for Benn this is working out as he made plays for us last season, particularly on ST.

    If you want to feel sorry for someone then feel sorry for the cities who are losing their franchises for the LA gold rush (and maybe Vegas shortly).

    I’m glad for Benn. The guy had horrible injury luck for several years. Now perhaps he’ll get his legs under him again and play some quality football – maybe even on offense now and then.
