Cedric Benson Close to Signing with the Packers

It appears as if the Packers are not going to wait to ink a veteran running back to try and push James Starks as the preseason gets going.

Running back Cedric Benson is in Green Bay and is expected to sign with the Packers, per sources according to Chris Mortensen of ESPN.

Last season and for the past four Benson was with the Bengals, going for more than 1,000 yards each of the past three years. His best season came in 2009, when Benson ran for 1,251 yards and six touchdowns.

The fourth overall pick out of Texas in the 2005 draft, Benson spent his first three seasons with the Bears.
