The San Diego Chargers will not have Malcom Floyd to run the deep route next season, so they will be looking to fill his spot on the roster. Keenan Allen will be back on the field next year after recovering from injury. Allen will be a huge boost to the offensive passing attack and Stevie Johnson should fill in nicely at a receiver position.
This team has been looking for a deep threat for a while. Floyd was the closest thing that the team has had and he will no longer be on the team. Now rumors are swirling about the Chargers interest in adding Travis Benjamin onto the roster.
Word from the combine has the San Diego Chargers & Atlanta Falcons in the hunt for receiver Travis Benjamin

The Chargers and the Atlanta Falcons are rumored to have interest in the speedy wide receiver. If Benjamin were added to the roster, he would take the starting role opposite of Keenan Allen and provide a deep threat on the roster. He would also take over the responsibilities on special teams as a returner.
What type of money is Benjamin looking for in free agency? He just had his most productive year last season, so he will be looking to cash in on this next contract.
A nice deal with Benjamin would be great, but there are other needs that need to be addressed. The offensive line is in shambles and the defensive line needs the same type of help. We could also use a pair of new safeties in the secondary. Benjamin would help this offense, but he wouldn’t fill the biggest hole on this offense. We need some fat boys up front.
