Q: How come the Bucs don't use Arrelious Benn as a slot receiver or change him to a fast tight end like the Giants' Martellus Bennett?

MOJO

A: The Bucs are using a lot of people in the slot these days, so you may soon get your wish of seeing Benn there. As far as moving him to tight end, I can't see that. He's not THAT big. Benn's best trait is his speed. The Bucs want to take advantage of that and the best way to do so usually is to play him outside of the numbers.
