The Facts: The Chargers and Benjamin have agreed to a one-year extension through 2020.
Diehards Line:According to ESPN's Field Yates, Benjamin's deal includes a $3 million. So, in exchange for a pay reduction this season on his non-guaranteed base salary, Benjamin gets that guaranteed bonus money plus an extra year tacked on. Benjamin’s roster spot for 2019 is secured, while the team creates $2.75 million in cap space. Benjamin had 12 caches for 186 yards and seven carries for 41 yards while serving as the No. 4 wideout in 12 games last season. Tyrell Williams‘ departure as a free agent offers a chance for Benjamin to step up a rung in 2019, although the Chargers could still add other options in the receiving corps.
