BenJarvus Green-Ellis Signs With Cincinnati Bengals

A move that was lost in the Tebow vortex yesterday, the Law Firm has signed on to play with Cincinnati next season.

Former New England Patriots running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis reached agreement on a three-year deal with the Cincinnati Bengals on Wednesday, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Green-Ellis likely will replace Cedric Benson, who is a free agent, as the Bengals' featured running back.

A couple of people had mentioned they would like to see him in Green. However I don't think he was ever really coming in. He has rushed for over 1,600 yards the last two seasons combined with no fumbles and 24 touchdowns. He would have been a nice compliment to Greene but I think he gets a lot more carries over in Cincinatti with Scott.

It weakens a division opponent and that is never a bad thing.
