    any interest in cedric benson anyone?

    Not that i expect much of a positive response to this one, but in the never ending quest to find something new to discuss during this time of year, does anyone think the rams should pursue cedric benson, waived today by the bears after his second arrest this month involving DUI. This arrest involved a car, the prior one a boat. While driving under the influence is certainly not a laughing matter, cedric has a legit shot to become the first athlete in memory to receive DUI's involving three moving vehicles in one season on the off chance that he gets pulled over in either a motorcyle, bike, or plane.

    ramming speed to all

    He'll get another shot in the NFL.

    Let's hope its NOT with the Rams.

    lol no thanks to benson, even with out all the troubles hes pretty much been a bust, so really no point in pursuing him either way.

    Well, I think it's a great idea...aside from Cedric Benson's long history of disappointments on and off the field. I mean is a lack of speed, power, toughness, work ethic, and maturity really such a bad thing?

    One word, yet very emphatic:

    NO!

    Re: any interest in Cedric Benson anyone?

    Tempting, tempting! Can we "rehab" and coach Cedric into maturity? Is he done with his DUI experiments? Were these really or seriously detrimental as, say, Packboy Jones'?

    I'm playing with the Cedric name right now because, for a fleeting moment, I pictured him in Rams uniform, trying to vindicate himself by being himself on the football field. ...As I said, to me, that's tempting!

    I Bill Devaney and almost anyone else in the state of Missouri will take a pass. I'd rather have Pittman anyways who seems to be progressing well

    Maybe we can convert him into a TE.

    LOL. Ah, a trifecta! I would love to see him pulled over in an airplane for DUI, er...., a FUI!

    Anyway. No.

    For perhaps the first time, we agree.

    Re: any interest in cedric benson anyone?

    The list of players who recover from this type of incident and go on to have stellar careers is rather short. So the chances aren't good. Benson may have all the potential in the world, but i don't want him near this franchise whilst he remains a boozebag lout.

    With that said,

    I'd say yes on two giant conditions.

    One, he stops drinking. No "last one". That's it. I want proven commitment to my franchise. It's not his god given right to play football for millions of dollars. He got paid a motza to piss it all away. If he make marked improvement and demonstrated commitment to playing football, I'd have him, albiet, on a short list.

    Two, Pittman or Leonard fall flat on their faces during training camp. As of now, I've no grounds to suggest this will happen, and no grounds to suggest it won't.

    Re: any interest in cedric benson anyone?

    even without the off the field problems, i dont see what the Rams could do with a RB that falls over after every three yards of movement

    I think we have more important things to worry about then taking a sub-par RB on as well.
