makes sense with the former prisoners and drug addicts the Bengals sign, they come pretty cheap. I was surprised with how Benson had been playing recently. I doubt Johnson does much these days though, he's pretty washed up

Thats what they said about Benson back in the day

Benson just sucked with Chicago, but Johnson has a lot of wear and tear.


Johnson could of done what Benson, Moss did, just suck enough to be let go?

Larry Johnson will forever be overrated. He ran behind 3 potential Hall of Famers in Will Shields (very likely), Willie Roaf (very likely), and Brian Waters (possibly), as well as one of the best run blocking FBs in Tony Richardson. Not to mention Tony Gonzales as his TE.

You would need a Prosthetic Leg to not produce big numbers behind that line.

i think of the same situation when dillon left for the pats. he didn't do much in the natti but came alive in new england. but who knows, benson was running good behind that bengals line, maybe johnson will too.
News is he will sign, Marvin Lewis has told him he will be a backup.

Didn't do much in Cincinnati? He had six straight seasons of 1100+ yards and four straight seasons of 1200+ yards.
