Benjamin, a first-year player who was selected in the seventh round, 222nd overall, graduated from Arizona State University in three years and made the decision to forego his senior year of collegiate eligibility so that he may pursue his goals of becoming a professional athlete.
In order for organizations to reduce down to an initial active roster of 53 players, mandatory cuts had to start occurring around the NFL on Saturday by no later than 1:00 p.m. After players were released and cleared waivers on Sunday, they began to be designated for the practice squad, which has a maximum capacity of 16 this year (up from 10 in previous years), with six of those spots reserved for vested veterans.
The Cardinals decided to take a chance on their pick in the 2020 draft, Benjamin, instead of Foster, who has had knee and hamstring problems since joining the team in 2017. Since then, Foster has been tasked with playing on the practice squad.
The Cardinals’ season kicks off on the road against the defending NFC champions, the 49ers. Prior to receiving significant offensive reps, Benjamin said he is mindful of the importance special teams will have in establishing his presence.
