    Why not much talk about Cedric Benson to the pats???

    Its been kinda surprising i havent heard more talk about people wanting Cedric on the pats. The guy has posted 3  1,000 yard seasons in a row and he's just sitting on the free agent market ready to be had with a low cost 1 year deal. Pats could def use a veteran running back like cedric to go along with there two second year backs. what you all think???

    Re: Why not much talk about Cedric Benson to the pats???

    look at his ypc average and his fum numbers. The amount of yards he had is a misleading considering the shear amount of carries he had in those seasons. Honestly if you normalize the carries his numbers were worse then BJGE over that stretch given the amount of fumbles/carry. I think people would rather take the chance on Vereen and Ridley who have shown hints of ability to average over 4 ypc

    He was getting upset last year that Bernard Scott was stealing some of his carries. Don't think he'd fit very well in the Pats' pass happy offense. If they're going with a vet I'd like to see someone that will accept whatever role is asked of him and be a good role model for Vereen and Ridley. Benson has cleaned up his act over the years but I'd still prefer someone who wasn't arrested multiple times.

    Time for the Patriots to let the young backs prove their worth. I think they are going to see what they have in the OTA's and mini camps and what not and if they dont like what they see im sure they will bring a vet back.

    Fumbles. lack of effectiveness. Just about in his 30s.

    Also, google "Cedric Benson Gay", suddenly it makes sense why NOBODY seems to want the guy. Anger issues, and possibly trying to lead a double life are not conducive to productive RBs.

         The Pats will carry 4 RBs this season, and a FB. Right now, they only have three RBs...Ridley, Vereen, and Woodhead. One more will be added via trade, or through the draft.

    Re: Why not much talk about Cedric Benson to the pats???

    my reasons

    1.)hes one mistake from a year long suspension
    2.)he was barely better then lawfirm on some stats, And fumbled much more often.
    3.)hes old

    Why bring in another old back who isnt any better then lawfirm was?
