At a time when the Cincinnati Bengals seemed to be the favorite to land 2005 NFL MVP Shaun Alexander, a native of nearby Florence, Kentucky, the Bengals threw the league a curveball on Tuesday, signing tailback Cedric Benson.

The team has announced via a press release the addition of Benson. Heíll replace DeDe Dorsey, who has been placed on injured reserve.

Benson was the fourth overall pick in the 2005 draft. The Bears dumped him after a lackluster 2007 season as the clear-cut starter ó and after two alcohol-related arrests in less than a month. Though a grand jury opted last week not to indict Benson on any of the pending charges, the decision of the Bengals to add a player with a troubled past will only reinforce the teamís standing as a franchise that simply doesnít care about the perception that more than a few of its players are turds.

Hey, but at least those talented-but-flawed players are helping the Bengals win lots of football games
