All the best to him in retirement!
I actually think this is a good thing. The Bengals have been pretty uninspiring at RB since Corey Dillon. They had Rudi and Ced and now BJGE but they remind me of good durable backs, not someone who is a home run hitter.
I guess my biggest complaint with the Bengals and RB is they have had a tough time finding a lesser round pick and getting that player PT. Just off the top of my head the Redskins were able to take a 6th round pick and turning him into a rushing leader. The Bengals had BJGE go down and inserted a ST player and a fullback over Herron. I don't know if the Bengals aren't fully ok with a RB going in whose pass blocking skills are less than stellar, but other teams seem to plug in RB's and succeed while the Bengals don't.
