    Oh lordy... you remember yesterday I said as a Bengals fan we know things can fall apart fast... let's hope this signing isn't the harbinger of doom.

    I was hoping the Eagles would take a stab at him.

    Is Ced-Ben seriously injured? He was playing really well. And their rookie backup looks really good too.

    yea no idea, i think schefter and mortensen reported last night the bengals expect benson to play next week. might be mike brown just trying to swoop him up before someone else does

    He hurt his hip yesterday, but took a couple of play after the "tweak". Still haven't heard much about it today (I've been trying to keep an eye out).

    Edit: Apparently he hasn't signed yet... http://cnati.com/cincinnati-bengals/johnson-to-visit-bengals-hasnt-signed-00728/ and a bit on Benson

    Does this mean Benson's injury is worse than it seems?

    I hate how players misbehave and are rewarded like this by going from a bad team to a good team. If you get dumped by a team for misbehaving, then you should go on a timeout like a spoiled little brat IMO.

    for what its worth, marvin said hes a 4th stringer and hes only reportedly signing for the league minimum. so in a way that is punishing him....im pretty skeptical of the signing myself, but if marvin is true to his word about johnson only being a insurance policy and will play scott while benson is out, im fine with it

    I don't think anyone believes that. If LJ is going to Cincy, he is going to back up Benson. Personally, I hope Benson is fine so that I don't have to worry about my FF team.

    interesting..i dont know, scott looked good against the steelers, i dont see how you go away from him if in fact benson is out for any period of time? bring LJ in runs inside the 10 or goal line maybe?

    I hope the conversation went something like this:

    "Look, we're 7-2 without you. You can either keep your mouth shut, work hard and be a part of a winning product or you can go back to collecting unemployment and further tarnishing your career and image. You're on what's called a short leash and the moment you go all Trojan Horse on us, we'll drop you so fast your head will spin. Take it or leave it."

    If Benson is out, trust me Bengal fans, Larry will probably be really good similar to Benson was (not as good). He is an idiot but he is a football player, good signing Bengals!

    Cincy is a good place for 2.7 to play. I wish him lots of fail.

    I really hope so.

    I'm cautiously okay with the signing, but my biggest fear is what this says about the Benson's status.
