I didn't think about the Cincinnati Bengals when thinking of possible teams for free agent BenJarvus Green-Ellis but it makes a lot of sense. Cincy is losing RB Cedric Benson in free agency and they have a boatload of salary cap space so the Bengals make sense.
According to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports, Green-Ellis will be visiting the Bengals. Cole previously reported a deal could be in the $3-4 million per year range. There were reportedly multiple teams interested in his services, including the New England Patriots. We haven't heard a confirmed report that the Chiefs are one of the teams interested in him but heavy speculations says they are.
We also know the Chiefs are seeking a running back in free agency. They're visiting with Peyton Hillis and Mike Tolbert. Jackie Battle, Thomas Jones and Le'Ron McClain are all free agents for the Chiefs.
Hillis? Tolbert? Green-Ellis? Which one would you prefer?
