At times in the past few seasons there was never a clear leader of the Cincinnati Bengals. You would think Carson Palmer would have taken that role, or Chad Ochocinco. Sometimes, they would flirt with that role but they never actually did any leading. Now, the Bengals may have a leader and he is not even under contract.
Cedric Benson is working out with fellow Bengals players in the middle of this lockout even though he is not even officially a Bengal. Here is what Jordan Palmer had to say about Benson:
“Cedric wants to be more than the guy who gets the ball in the backfield. He wants to be a leader. He wants to be the identity of the team and the franchise, and I’m all for that.”
Me too Jordan. After all, we have seen Benson lead the Bengals to victory over division rivals Steelers and Ravens. Now maybe he can lead the Bengals over the rest of the NFL. Below is video of Benson highlights, just because it is awesome.
