Benson has been a surprise participant at Cincinnati’s player-only workouts, according to Joe Reedy of Cincinnati Enquirer. He’s seen the team’s new offensive playbook and says he likes that Jay Gruden’s scheme has more downhill runs in it.
Even though he’s unsigned, Benson is sounding like a guy that plans to be back as a centerpiece in an otherwise changing offense.
“I’ve been very passive the last three years almost because I’ve had to,” Benson said. “I’m not saying I’m a totally different person or I’d be crazy vocal or anything like that. I would be a little bit more expressive. I work hard and am passionate about it. I want the guys I’m playing with to be the same way.”
