AP Source: Broncos Trade Receiver Trinity Benson To Lions

A person familiar with the deal says the Denver Broncos have traded speedy wide receiver Trinity Benson to the Detroit Lions in exchange for fifth- and seventh-round picks in the 2022 draft.

The Lions also received a sixth-round pick in 2023 from the Broncos.

Benson was a longshot from East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma, who spent the last two years on Denver’s practice squad.

Benson outshined the Broncos’ star-studded receiving corps filled with high draft picks from Power Five schools but didn’t figure to get much playing time in Denver.
