Jets touched base with Cedric Benson
Free agent Cedric Benson revealed Tuesday that the Packers have joined the Raiders in "checking" on his status this summer.
Benson also indicated the Jets touched base "way earlier" in the summer. Out of touch with his market value entering his age-29 season, Benson "made it pretty clear" to SiriusXM radio's Adam Schein that he's holding out for more than the veteran minimum salary. Unless the Seahawks get desperate in the wake of Marshawn Lynch's DUI arrest, he's not going to get his wish. The Packers' interest is proof that the team hasn't closed the door on a veteran backfield addition.
