Chargers looking to utilize Travis Benjamin as punt returner
- The Chargers want to use WR Travis Benjamin more as a punt returner in the upcoming season. Benjamin returned nine punts last season, compared to 15 and eight for teammates Isaiah Burse and Dexter McCluster, respectively.
- The last time Benjamin was extensively used as a punt returner was with Cleveland in 2015. That season, he returned 27 punts and graded as the fifth-best punt returner in the league.
- In 2015, among players with at least 20 punt returns, no one recorded more average yards per return than Benjamin (12.0).
- Benjamin has three career punt-return touchdowns in his five years in the league. The Chargers last recorded a punt return touchdown in 2012.
