Cedric Benson's emotional plea to get back into the NFL made me root for the guy. Even if he's a little unrealistic about his market value.
Benson did not sound open to taking a veteran's minimum contract, which is a mistake. There's a chance he could eventually do better, but there's an equal chance that some veteran like Ryan Grant would take a lesser salary. That's a tiebreaker.
Still, we think Benson is good enough to be in the league. You generally want your backup running backs to play special teams, but Benson can be a league average backup at worst as a power back on early downs.
