BENGALS DIG THE EX-BEARS
Go Bengals! They have re-signed Cedric Benson and Rex Grossman will be visiting on Thursday. “Cedric was a great addition for us last year,” Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said. “We’re looking to see him pick up right where he left off.” Best of luck with that. Benson gets $7 million over 2 years.
Most surprising was this from Lewis:
“His years in Chicago weren’t what he hoped for, but he was able to give us a lift on the field and be a great presence in the locker room. He earned everyone’s respect, and we’re excited to let him continue to grow in our system.”
That’s a far cry from the guy that was here in Chicago, where he wasn’t well-liked. And as I wrote earlier, I wouldn’t get too excited just yet if I was a Bengals fan.
