Report: Raiders interested in RB Cedric Benson

The Oakland Raiders could use some more depth at running back behind often-injured Darren McFadden.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Raiders are interested in free agent running back Cedric Benson. During the off-season, the Raiders lost Michael Bush and added former Panther Mike Goodson. They also have second-year player Taiwan Jones on their roster.

Benson would be a great addition seeing as he rushed for 1,067 yards last season with the Bengals. Despite the 1,000 yard season, Benson hasn’t gained much attention from teams this off-season, so he’ll likely come at a cheap price for Oakland.
