The Detroit Free Press says negotiations with Cedric Benson haven't begun despite a local Austin report saying a signing with Detroit was imminent.

Shaun Alexander and Vernand Morency also worked out for Detroit Tuesday. The local Austin news report was basing it's news on a comment from a city council member who explained Benson's absence from a charity event by saying he was signing with the Lions. He probably just confused going in for a tryout with signing.
I'm going to try find another source but I've been hearing its a done deal.

Like I mentioned in a previous thread, I've always been a fan of Benson, and I'm really hoping he gets a second chance. He's still young, and you never know he could eventually figure out the NFL and be a good running back.

He's a number 1 draft pick that has had an injury-riddled, mediocre career.

Is anyone surprised that he got signed by Detroit? Seriously? I am not.

Signing in Detroit is the perfect place for him to resurrect his career from being this mediocre first round pick into a well rounded...waoekakadasdadnjytujt

I believe if given another chance, he could surprise a lot of people. He won't have any pressure playing in Detroit like he did in Chicago. He wont be asked to carry this team on the offesive side of the ball like he was in Chicago.

I really hope he signs with the Lions and gets the carries.
