Who knew that Cedric Benson would be the voice of reason within the Bengals.
If he added Marvin Lewis to these quotes it would have been even better. Here is what he had to say.
“I love Carson Palmer to death. He’s supported me and taught me a lot but I think when a guy expresses himself as strongly as he has it’s almost not healthy for the team to bring him back,” Benson said, according to the Enquirer.
“I know the Cincinnati Bengals enjoy Ocho but I think in order for this team to be successful and be a force, if ownership so desires, it’s time to make a change,” he said.
I believe Ocho deserves to be released considering the amount of slander he has received, but the Bengals should call Palmer’s bluff that he would rather retire than play for the Bengals again.
