“We haven’t had any talks about a new deal, re-signing or anything like that to my knowledge,” Benson told Marvez and Ross Tucker on Sirius XM NFL Radio. “I’m not sure where things are laying up there in Cincinnati.”
Benson didn’t disappoint us when he decided to criticize the Bengals offense.
“I just think we didn’t stick with what the offense was built on,” Benson said Tuesday night. “Since I’ve been there the past four years we’ve ran the football to try and win games. Even when we had Carson (Palmer) and Chad (Ochocinco), we still kept a strong identity in the run game.
“I just feel we got away from it. We didn’t let that part of the offense grow the way it could have.”
Benson, who’s now 29 years old may have a hard time catching on with a team because of the problems he’s caused in the past. Running backs are a dime a dozen in the NFL, so he may not be able to sign with a team until some guys go down with injuries during training camp and the preseason.
