Bengals sign Cedric Benson

Bengals.com reports that the Cincinnati Bengals signed running back Cedric Benson, after placing DeDe Dorsey on the Injured Reserve with a hamstring injury suffered last week against Cleveland.

Benson has a lot of baggage with him, after being arrested twice in the span of a few months. The first was an early May boating while intoxicated incident. The other was a DYI in Austin, Texas in early June. Grand jury threw out both charges.

Benson, a former first-round pick running back from Texas, has 1,593 yards rushing in his three-year career, with 10 touchdowns and a 3.8 yards-per-carry average.

Considering the situation of running backs on this team, I like this move. We need to bolster the position after injuries and questionable cuts and lack of production. Look, we're 0-4; there's not one thing we shouldn't try.
