I wonder if he is still in playing shape... it takes a lot of energy to run up behind the offensive line, shuffle his feet, and fall down. I guess the Bengals felt they had enough experience dealing with head cases (Ocho Cinco?) and criminal charges to take on Benson.

I didn't know that the GM of the Bengals was PT Barnum.

Better check your own IQ, buddy... I watched every down the Bears played last season. Benson would take a handoff, run to the line, shuffle, and get tackled. This year, same line with the exception of Beekman, all a year older, and a rookie running back finds the holes that Benson couldn't. He should fit in well with the Bengals: 2 arrests and an ego bigger than his talent.
