George Gojkovich/Getty Images(MILWAUKEE) — Running back Cedric Benson is expected to sign with the Green Bay Packers, sources told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.

The free-agent back is headed into his eighth NFL season. He rushed for 1,067 yards last season for the Cincinnati Bengals, the third straight season he eclipsed that mark.

Benson, 29, would become seventh running back on the Packers’ roster. During Green Bays’ first preseason game against San Diego, James Starks, rookie Marc Tyler and Alex Green all saw carries.
