A day after it was learned that talks have broken down between WR Travis Benjamin and the Cleveland Browns, now we're hearing about some of the teams who could be in the market for him. According to Tony Pauline of Draft Insider, rumors down at the NFL Combine are that two of the teams interested in Benjamin are the San Diego Chargers and the Atlanta Falcons.

Both teams have needed receiver help over the past couple of years. If Benjamin were to sign with the Falcons, he'd be re-united with former offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. Benjamin's one season with Shanahan wasn't a very productive one, though. As a backup in 2014, he caught 18 passes for 314 yards and 3 touchdowns. This past season, as a starter, he caught 68 passes for 966 yards and 5 touchdowns, shattering his numbers from his previous three years.
