The Cincinnati Bengals are kicking the tires of free agent running backs.
The Cincinnati Bengals are scheduled to host running back Mike Goodson, reports Mike Silver with Yahoo! Sports. According to his report, Goodson is flying into Cincinnati Tuesday night and visiting the team facilities on Wednesday.
Goodson, a fifth-year veteran who spent the 2012 season with the Oakland Raiders, has attracted interest from several teams, including the New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys. The Bengals theoretically could take him off the market as early as Wednesday if he has a positive experience at the team's training facility and if the organization can come up with a financial package to his liking.
Goodson has generated 722 yards rushing in his four-year career, the first three in Carolina, with a career 4.5 yard/rush average. Additionally Goodson posted 40 receptions in 2010, giving him 59 for his career.
The Bengals are looking for another running back to compliment BenJarvus Green-Ellis in a duel-back system, long coveted by Marvin Lewis and Jay Gruden.
