Well we can cross another team off the list of teams that Cedric Benson could possibly sign with, a list that isn’t very long any more. After the Raiders reportedly said they were not interested last week, the team which Benson has led in carries for the last 3 years, the Cincinnati Bengals seem to be out of the question as well.
The Cincinnati Enquirer is saying that the “ship has sailed” between the two sides. Having gone on no visits this offseason, it’s possible Benson could be done or have to wait for an injury to make a roster. 30 years old in December, Benson has been one of the worst lead backs in the league over the last 3 years and with a history of off the field trouble, he might not be worth the trouble any more.
