You are an idiot. This guy was one of the biggest busts the bears ever drafted. He was paid a fortune and didn't produce at all. For anyone that has defended him you are pathetic. You honestly think this is a quality back? Must have forgotten the last 3 years.
I'm an idiot? whatever... He'll be a solid back in the league. Ask the Cardinals what they thought of mega bust Thomas Jones. He eventually started to mature, stopped doing steroids with Pittman and Boston, and salvaged his career... albeit kind of late. I didn't mean to make you mad.

David. stop hate-ing. I celebrate cedric's deal. you talked negative of him when he was here and you always talked highly of grossman. you say it Is yet to be seen about how well he'll turn out. you don't want him to do well. fakes like you and dan jiggetts a has-being In his own right passed judgement too soon. I know that you guys were In serious love with thomas jones. but I'm pulling for cedric as I did when he was In chicago. and now you speak badly about haynes and curry. dude. what qualifys you to have your job? you're great at questioning others. but whats so great about you?

greg. I'm with you. cedric Is going to do a great job. sam you're the Idiot. the first season cedric didn't get much play because he held out of traing camp. remember? the second season he was sharing with your boy thomas jones. remember? the third season yall booed him out of chicago. I know you remember that. you should because cedric Is gonna make guys like you and those two jerks david haugh and dan jiggetts look stupid. to show the losers you all are. you kept having hope and faith In rex grossman. at lease when cedric left chicago he showed some improvements. but you guys still will not give him any respect. HATERS.

The only way Cedric "The Non-Entertainer" Benson was on track to be the next Walter Payton is if you started Walter Payton's career at the date of his death.
When you say something that stupid, how do we take you seriously when you start talking about racism?

Most hated Bear all of time. I wish nothing but a Joe Theisman injury on him.

Hilaaaarious! He found his home away from home. He will fit right in. The Bungels are building something special, if your a convict or a lunatic.

The biggest problem with this story is that the Bears cut their 1st round draft pick and got nothing in return. Another wasted Angelo pick.

Why is Cedric the Bust always talking about what allegedly happened to him while he was a Bear?

Trust me, if he had earned even a small portion of the 14M he stole from us then he'd still be a Bear.

Looking back,he's was a punk then and he's a punk now!!!

Cedric,stop whining and move on!!!

Mgray, are you freaking insane??? I'll wager everything I own Forte outgains Benson EVERY season they are both starters and on the field for 80% of the games. That must be the most ridiculous statement I have heard on the boards in at least a year. You might want to actually watch some football before spewing feces out of your mouth.

Oh yeah, and Cedhead, the Bears are a racist team with a black head coach??? Is he the token? Think about that one for a minute.

Jones was, is and always will be mediocre. He pouted his way out of three cities and he's on his way to a fourth. He sucked as bad as Favre the final month of the season and had the nerve to call out a teammate.

Like Fat Albert used to say. "NC" - no class

I'll never understand the love for Thomas Jones in Chicago.

He is a failure and always will be. Being punished with the Bengals is rightful sentence for this Longhorn loser.

Really? Is this even a story?
Chicago sportswriters have nothing better to do than trash people after they leave. I was appalled to come to this website last week and see a Rex Grossman countdown. The only people who care about these stories are the self-serving writers who write them.
The Bears DID NOT stand by him with the legal stuff that was proven to be false. You skirt the issue just to continue on your silly agenda of this column.
You say he is troubled, because that is your opinion. A lot of people think he just has had bad luck. You don't speak for all of Chicago, regardless of if you think your keyboard and position at a global website and newspaper gives you that right.
I used to respect you as a writer, but now you are in Rosenbloom territory. Just bashing for bashing sake.
For shame.
I wish Cedric the best. I don't feel he got a fair shake here. I don't think Haugh ever had a decent thing to say about Benson. The guy made mistakes. He brought some stuff to himself. That's for sure. But no one's perfect. Good luck, Cedric.

The Bengals signed L. Coles to a 4 year 28 million dollar contract and that should be the last of the good free agents. And what have we accomplished in free agency in the past 10 years? Muhsin Muhammed, Marty Booker, Brandon Lloyd, Adam Archuletta, Kevin Jones, Darwin Walker, Ricky Manning Jr., Fred Miller along with other leftover free agents.

30 million left under the cap, still!!! This is Chicago not Oklahoma City what the hell is going on?

Fire Phillips, Angelo and Turner!!! I'm so sick of these guys.

Does anyone know what Angelo makes a year because he must be making a killing in all the money he saves the McCaskeys. Highway robbery at it's finest and we the fans are the one's that are getting it in the rear each and every year.

Get these proven losers out of Chicago already!!!

"We reward from within". Go take that philosophy and go shove it up your ring hole Angelo!!!

Oh **** you, Bumson! You were treated the way you were because of YOU. Your actions and lack of effort annoyed the team, and us, the fans.
I can't wait for us to face you next year. Briggs will snap you in 2, and Forte will run all over your precious Bungles.
