As of this posting, the Bengals have five running backs under contract heading into training camp. After the well known trio of Cedric Benson, Bernard Scott and Brian Leonard, the Bengals have Cedric Peerman and Cordera Eason on roster. Make that six. According to the Bengals, Cincinnati claimed running back Walter Mendenhall off of waivers on Thursday.
Mendenhall was released by the Bills on Wednesday, only after signing him a little over a month ago. He's also spent time with the Indianapolis Colts after entering the NFL as an undrafted college free agent with the Philadelphia Eagles.
