Free Agent RB Options

As we await the end of the NFL lockout and the beginning of free agency let’s look at running back options that might be at the Bengals disposal IF Cedric Benson is not re-signed. I personally feel Benson is a good fit for this team and that the team will re-sign him but if for some reason the unexpected happens I would like to see the team go after a player such as Michael Bush or DeAngelo Williams as they are players that are still fairly young and also have some upside with more big play potential than some of the other free agents that will be available.

Some of the top free agents that should be available are listed below along with their 2010 statistics.
