The injury-prone wideout was released by the team Saturday with an injury settlement, per Adam Caplan.
Benn had been placed on short-term injured reserve August 29, a shocker to many, as it wasn't apparent at any point in the Jets game that Benn had been hurt. Earlier in the game, Benn burned the coverage on a 43-yard touchdown pass by Matt Barkley.
Benn had also missed all of 2013 with the Eagles, after tearing an ACL in training camp.
Benn is now free to sign with any team.
