According to just about everyone on Twitter, the Bengals came to terms with BenJarvus Green-Ellis. I am hearing a 3 year deal.
Ellis is also known as the running back that never fumbles, ever.
As I talked about last night with Geoff Hobson from Bengals.com it is good that the Bengals were able to get a deal done with a running back so that they can focus their attention on some other needs in the draft.
Defensive line, Defensive backs and a wide receiver as well as an offensive guard should come early in the draft now that a running back is here. The Bengals may still look for a young ball carrier in the draft, but this gives them some breathing room.
And all of you thought the Bengals would do nothing in free agency. Nelson and Ellis are both great signings.
