Chicago Bears Don't Want Cedric Benson, Neither Do 31 Other NFL Teams

    The Chicago Bears placed Cedric Benson on waivers this week, which means all 31 other NFL teams could have claimed the rights to him. And although Benson hasn't exactly been, you know, good -- either on or off the field -- there was some talk in league circles that some team might take a flyer on him.

    Nope. Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports (via PFT) that no team claimed Benson on waivers. That means he's now an unrestricted free agent, and it means no team thinks he's worth the relatively low salary of $820,000 he was scheduled to make in 2008.

    So where does Benson go from here? I still think he'll sign with some NFL team in 2008. For as disappointing as his career has been so far, if guys like Tank Johnson and Pacman Jones can get second chances, Benson can too. He'll never be close to the kind of player the Bears thought he was when they made him the fourth pick in the 2005 draft, but Benson isn't done.

    Pacman and Tank actually had talent at positions of need.

    RBs are a dime a dozen, and he isn't even the best one available.

    Why the fuk is Benson getting so much pub? He hasn't done chiat on the field in fact he's done more off the field. He sucks.

    I think I just answered my own question.
