Don't really get all the love for Benson. He had a nice run with the Bengals but I am not opening up the pocket books for him. I wonder how much tread he has left on his tires and would be content going with Scott + another RB.
If there were a way to ensure the Bengals would be staring Andrew Luck in the face next season, I'd be all over it. I'd trade Palmer and bring on LeFevour in a second if it lead to Luck next year.
Knowing the Bengals, they'll tank the season but win just enough meaningless games at the end to lose out on Luck.
