Bears running back was busted again last night - this time for a DUI on land, rather than on the water. He was pulled over for a traffic violation in Austin and refused to take a breathalyzer or blood test. Think the Bears wished they had traded Benson and kept Thomas Jones now?

Here's a link to the original story. (http://www.statesman.com/blogs/content/shared-gen/blogs/austin/blotter/entries/2008/06/07/chicago_bears_running_back_ced.html)

I think they knew they made a mistake last year....they have fixed that mistake by drafting Matt Forte...who will be a stud for the Bears.

Worst Bears draft pick since Enis. Mondo Bust.

Forte will be good however.

bears should go for kevin jones(former lion). he can't be worse than benson. it'll take some time before forte's ready to carry the load, but when he's ready he'll be great

just ship benson off to cincy

Get the paper hat ready - Cedric Benson is going to be working at a Mickey D's very soon. Problem child off the field and an unmitigated bust on it to boot? He's history. Hope for his sake he actually learned something marketable at the U. of Texas.

Has a back from Texas actually made it in the league recently? They seem to be recuiting bad apples down there for wins and not caring about the future of these guys.

about time....

Bears send home Benson, later release troubled running back

After his boating DUI charge, Cedric Benson remained a starting running back in the eyes of coach Lovie Smith and the Chicago Bears.

His weekend DUI charge while in a car in Austin, Texas, has led to his release, however. The Bears placed Benson on waivers Monday, two years before the end of his contract and three years into a disappointing career with the team.

I'm sure Benson will be getting a call from the Bungles any day now. He would be a great fit in Cincy.

If not Cincy, then Dallas.
Jerry Jones' home for wayward football players already includes Pacman Jones and Tank Johnson.
