Bengals sign Green-Ellis

The “Law Firm” has opened a new office in Cincinnati. The Bengals have agreed to terms with free agent running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis on a three year deal. Green-Ellis will take over as the starter for soon-to-be former Bengal Cedric Benson.

Green-Ellis has been a steady, solid performer in New England for the past three seasons. With defenses primed to contain the Patriots wild passing attack, the Law Firm rushed for over 1000 yards in 2010 and managed to punch out 24 rushing scores in the past two seasons.

Throughout his four year career, the sure-handed Green-Ellis has never fumbled. He’s a solid blocker and between the tackles rusher. He’ll fit well into what the Bengals like to do on offense and is likely to simply replace Benson in a two-back rotation with Jerome Simpson.

 

Fantasy Focus: The fit seems to be a good one. Both Benson and Green-Ellis are slower, plodding backs with good vision, power and are solid in pass-protection. We think that it’s a far cry from Tom Brady and the vaunted New England passing game to that of Andy Dalton in Cincinnati. It’s possible that the Law Firm could be exposed as a product of the Pats’ system and could struggle when given more attention from defenders. For 2012, he looks like a lower-tiered RB2 and a goal of 900 rushing yards and 8 touchdowns seems realistic.
