Bengals adding RBs?
By Tim Kavanagh
The Cincinnati Bengals got a 1,000-yard season out of BenJarvus Green-Ellis in 2012 (1,094 yards, to be precise), and while that was an acceptable outcome, they'd like to bolster their RB corps heading into 2013, to establish more of a run-centered offense, according to Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com. So will they be players in free agency for the likes of Rashard Mendenhall, Ahmad Bradshaw or Reggie Bush?
"I think I believe they're looking for someone young and fast and with three picks in the first 54, look for him somewhere in there," Hobson speculates. "There are a lot of backs out there and the Bengals should be able to get a solid speedster at one of those selections to team with BenJarvus Green-Ellis. Is it going to be Ray Rice? Who knows? At No. 55 overall, Ray Rice wasn't supposed to be Ray Rice."
Players like Clemons' Andre Ellington or Florida's Mike Gillislee could fit the bill for Cincy, and both should still be available for them in Round 2.
