Raiders in “no rush” to sign Cedric Benson

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the Oakland Raiders are in “no rush” to sign Cedric Benson. Benson to the Raiders would seem like an obvious fit because, while the Raiders do have running backs, Darren McFadden, Taiwan Jones, and Mike Goodson, none are power backs like Benson is. Benson to the Raiders has been speculated for weeks, but they appear to not be in any rush to sign him, which would explain why such an obvious fit hasn’t happened yet. That could change once Training Camp starts. Benson, who has been among the league’s top-10 in carries for 3 straight years, figures to sign somewhere eventually as teams assess their running back depth in Training Camp, even as he heads into his age 30 season.
