The Green Bay Packers are not re-signing RB Cedric Benson Wednesday, April 24. The team wanted to get an update on a foot issue he is dealing with.
Huddle Up: Don't rule out the Packers revisiting Benson at some point in the offseason, but they're more likely use the draft to find a running back or stick with DuJuan Harris as their primary ball-carrier.

The Green Bay Packers are scheduled to meet with free agent RB Cedric Benson (foot) Wednesday, April 23. Benson is almost completely healed from a Lisfranc injury.
Huddle Up: Benson, who had 345 yards from scrimmage and 1 TD in 5 games with the Packers last season, would be joining the same cast of characters (James Starks, Alex Green, DuJuan Harris) if he returns to Green Bay. There also is speculation that the Pack may target a RB fairly high in this week's draft.

Free-agent RB Cedric Benson (foot) is getting closer to 100 percent, and he is on teams' radars.
Huddle Up: After 3 consecutive 1,000-yard rushing seasons in Cincy, Benson gained only 248 yards in 5 games with the Pack before bowing out with his foot injury. That and the fact he will turn 31 in December will limit the RB's options.

The Green Bay Packers may be willing to re-sign impending free-agent RB Cedric Benson this offseason but likely would give him only a one-year deal worth the veteran minimum.
Huddle Up: Benson isn't the solution in Green Bay, but he wasn't bad as part of a committee and would be a low-cost alternative if the Packers don't address their backfield deficiencies in the draft or with other higher-profile free agents. How's that for a glowing endorsement?

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent Cedric Benson is still wearing a walking foot on his surgically repaired foot but believes he will be ready for the start of training camp. Benson indicated that he would like to re-sign with the Packers this offseason.
Huddle Up: Backs should be lining up to play for Green Bay, as it's quite enjoyable to run against defenses focused on the pass. The Packers have some options at running back, at least in the free agent market; bringing Benson back would be "settling", so don't be surprised if they come up with a better option.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said he would love to see RB Cedric Benson return next season.
Huddle Up: Benson only played in 5 games before being sidelined with a foot injury, and he finished with a pedestrian 248 rushing yards on 71 carries. He could be back in Green Bay next season, but with plenty of competition as the Packers must find a No. 1 RB they can rely on.
