Well, well, well. Bears fans endured crowing from Bengals fans in 2009, and from Cedric Benson himself, when the runner bowled over the Bears in a lopsided Bengals win. The Bears were stupid for ever releasing Benson due to a lackadaisical approach to his job, and several run-ins with the law. We would see, they said, that Benson had changed and would become the dominant runner he was supposed to be coming out of college.
It’s being reported today that Benson was arrested after being accused of punching the employee of a bar in Austin, Texas on May 30th.
According to the article in the Austin Statesman, Benson not only threw the punch, but also spit blood from his injured lip at an employee while he was being escorted from the premises. Nice work, Ced.
As I maintained in 2009, as I felt when the Bears selected Benson, as I feel today, Benson has done nothing to change my opinion that he will find himself out of the NFL due to his own actions.
