Bengals Keep RB Benson

By  | 

Free-agent running back Cedric Benson has agreed to stay with the Cincinnati Bengals, who gave him a chance to resurrect his career last season.

Benson agreed to terms Tuesday, said a person familiar with the
deal who spoke on condition of anonymity because it hadn't been
announced.

Benson was signed to a one-year deal last season, and wound up
leading the team in rushing with 747 yards. He had been released by
the Bears following two offseason arrests in Texas. Those cases
were dropped when grand juries declined to indict.
