Earlier on Saturday we pointed out (like a few minutes ago) that running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis remains in contract negotiations with the New England Patriots, soon before his visit with the Cincinnati Bengals. However Greg Bedard with the Boston Globe tweets that "not much is expected" with the Law Firm's Cincinnati visit on Sunday and that a third "mystery" team have already begun contract negotiations with the running back.
Not much is expected from Green-Ellis' Bengals visit tomorrow, but a third team - the all-powerful mystery team - has started contract talks
And to be perfectly honest, we honestly didn't feel there was much going on here either. That's not to say something won't happen, rather it's our belief (complete conjecture on our part, by the way), that the Bengals continue targeting Michael Bush as their No. 1 guy and Green-Ellis would be the team's contingency if something isn't worked out with Bush.
