Bennett to work out

By Marla Ridenour Published: April 28, 2009

Drew Bennett, an eight-year veteran receiver, will work out for the Browns Wednesday, according to a source.

Bennett, 30, was released by the St. Louis Rams in February. He caught just one pass in 2008 before breaking his leg on the first series of the season opener. He had been signed to a six-year, $30 million contract in 2007 after playing six seasons with the Tennessee Titans.

In his career, Bennett has totalled 307 receptions for 4,412 yards and 28 touchdowns. He could fit in as a possession receiver, the role held by Joe Jurevicius in 2007.

The Browns drafted two receivers -- Brian Robiskie of Ohio State and Mohamed Massaquoi of Georgia -- in the second round last weekend and signed 12-year veteran David Patten in free agency. Braylon Edwards has not participated in all of the off-season workouts after the Browns attempted to trade him to the New York Giants and Donte' Stallworth is embroiled in legal woes after killing a pedestrian while driving under the influence in Miami Beach in March.
