Benson Arrested In Texas


Cedric Benson was arrested for assault in Texas for the second straight offseason.

A great way to start a Sunday…  Cedric Benson, the unrestricted free agent that most Bengals fans feel we must retain, has found himself once again on the wrong side of the Go To Jail sign.  Benson, according to an ESPN.com report, was arrested in Texas early Sunday morning for an assault causing bodily injury to a member of his family.  This comes one week after another presumed starter, Adam ‘PacMan’ Jones, was arrested for disorderly conduct.  While it’s bad news for Ced, it may be good news for Mike Brown, as other clubs may feel that this is another sign that the 28 year old running back isn’t worth the risk, thus driving down his market value.  Benson was arrested in Texas last offseason for a bar altercation but was later cleared. It remains to be seen if the arrest will lead to a league imposed suspension.
