Think of the tax revenue off the booze sales if we sign Benson and draft Alex Boone

I guess we could do worse. As long as he is cheap, 3.5 ypc is not something we should bid aggressively for.

He did alright last year with the Bengals, especially towards the second half of the season IIRC. I say sign him.

Benson and Erik Winston were high school teammates . If Winston gave a greenlight and he passed a physical , I wouldn't hesitate to sign him if the price was right .

Why ... this , like Smith would give some flexibility to the draft . You wouldn't have to worry about depth and draft the bpa .

You think too small - the fines for the DUI's would be much larger, and would go directly to the city!

I think I don't like the guy, but he had more success as the backup in Chicago than the feature back. I do think he has an attitude that could be a cancer because I doubt he was humbled by his sucking ass in Chicago..

He cost my high school a chance at a state title.

Cedric did fairly well with an awful Bengals team.

Since we didn't even look at him last year, I figured he wouldn't be looked at THIS year. Wrong!

This certainly makes things interesting.

I figured we had spent Bobby McNair's free agency "allowance" already. Guess not. Of course, we might not be able to offer much. I wonder how much of the Ward/Benson possibility is an honest effort to sign one of those, or if it's just to see if we can snag one of them "on the cheap?"

Hmmmmm.....the announcement of Benson's scheduled visit is interesting.

Default Re: Benson visiting Texans

I worry about this move. His attitude and off the field problems are enough to make me think that this isn't clever. We haven't been the luckiest with injuries, and the last thing we need is off the field distractions. I think some of his troubles have been people laying shit on him, which was perhaps not warranted, but I would like to see him go a year without ending up in the back of a squad car before committing money to him,

Football wise I'm sure he'd be a solid producer with Stevie, but with his attitude and ego, I'm really not a fan of his.
