National Sports

Al Bello/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The Law Firm is moving to Cincinnati. According to ESPN, the Cincinnati Bengals have signed former New England Patriots running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis to a free agent contract.

The 26-year old Green-Ellis spent his four years with the New England Patriots and even though he never put up Pro Bowl numbers, he established himself as a more-than-reliable running back to a contending team. His best season came in 2010 when he rushed for 1,008 yards and 13 touchdowns. This past season, Green-Ellis ran for 667 yards and 11 touchdowns.

The Bengals are likely replacing former running back Cedric Benson, who is expected to leave the team via free agency. In 53 career games and 510 carries, Green-Ellis has never registered a fumble.
