The Cincinnati Bengals announced Wednesday that they have finalized rookie running back Dan Herron’s four-year contract.

Financial details are not available. Herron, a sixth-round pick out of Ohio State, rushed for 1,155 yards as a junior before managing just 678 yards during a suspension-shortened senior campaign.

Herron measured in at 5-foot-10, 213 during February’s Scouting Combine, before running a 4.66 forty time. He’ll compete for snaps behind new Bengals starting tailback BenJarvus Green-Ellis and change-of-pace complement Bernard Scott.

    “He’ll compete for snaps behind new Bengals starting tailback BenJarvus Green-Ellis and change-of-pace complement Bernard Scott.”

    No, he’ll be put on the practice squad unless there’s an injury. Lawfirm and Scott are the main backs, Brian Leonard is the 3rd down/2 min drill back, Cedric Peerman is a special teams ace, and Chris Pressley is the fullback. He’s good insurance though…

    With how many competitive running backs we already have, he’ll be lucky to be on special teams.

    What has Scott and Peerman ever done to deserve a spot? Give Boom a chance, he might surprise you.

    Boom has an excellent chance at sticking over Scott. He would have been a 3rd round pick had he not been suspended. Scott is injury prone and has not produced the kind of play where you say ” oh he’s a lock”.

    Plus Herron would never sniff the Bengals practice squad. He’d be scooped up by someone.

    Dan Herron will not just definately make the team, he’ll be opening day starter.

    It must be true, Pete Johnson says so…..
