Cedric Benson Signs With the Green Bay Packers

Well, this one is a surprise.

Earlier today, the Green Bay Packer agreed to terms with free agent running back, Cedric Benson.  Surprisingly, Benson remained unsigned despite the fact that he’s racked up three consecutive 1,000 yard seasons.  Fantasy players hoping to snatch up Benson this fall for their rosters may want to temper their expectations – although Benson will make a case to start and threaten the reps of incumbent starter James Starks, the Packers run a passing offense and Benson has never been known as a receiving threat out of the backfield.  However, this move should help the Packers in the win column.
