CLEVELAND, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- Travis Benjamin looked poised to have a breakout season, scoring four touchdowns in the first three weeks last season for the Cleveland Browns.

He also looked ready to re-sign with the team to start this week. But on Tuesday, talks between Benjamin and the Browns broke down, according to Rand Getlin, of the NFL Network. Getlin also said that Benjamin "will hit the market."
