GREEN BAY, WI (WHBL) - The search for a running back who can hang onto the ball leads the Green Bay Packers to veteran free agent Cedric Benson. Insiders are calling some kind of agreement with Benson “probable.” ESPN is reporting it as fact. Injuries have slowed two Packer backs and James Starks has struggled. The 29 year old Benson is coming off three straight thousand-yard seasons in Cincinnati. He carried the ball 273 times for 1,067 yards last season, scoring six touchdowns. He does have a somewhat checkered past, having been arrested numerous times. He became a free agent after the 2011 season and went unsigned.
