GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Cedric Benson has something to prove -- primarily to his new team, not his old one.
The veteran running back is expected to see his first preseason game action for the Green Bay Packers at Cincinnati on Thursday night, a return to the place where he spent the past four seasons.
And while Benson spent several months waiting for the right opportunity in free agency before signing with the Packers, he doesn't seem overly concerned about proving something to the Bengals just because they didn't do more to bring him back.
Benson says, "I don't hold anything personally against them, but naturally you're going to want to show up on a team that passed on you."
