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.
