Bengals sign Ohio State RB Herron

CINCINNATI (AP) - The Bengals have signed running back Daniel Herron from Ohio State, their sixth-round pick in the draft.

Herron was the Buckeyes' MVP and served as a captain last season. He joins a crowded group of running backs trying to take over for Cedric Benson, who left as a free agent.

With Herron's signing, the Bengals have seven of their 10 draft picks under contract, including top pick Dre Kirkpatrick, a cornerback from Alabama. Wisconsin guard Kevin Zeitler is the highest unsigned pick - the Bengals got him later in the first round.
