Happy Saturday, ladies and gentlemen. After watching his running backs struggle on Thursday, Ted Thompson decided to go ahead and get a new one. The Packers are expected to sign Cedric Benson shortly. He's a veteran who has been productive, but unspectacular during his NFL career. He also hasn't ever played with a passing game like the one in Green Bay, so I'm optimistic about him. Here's your daily dose of Green Bay Packers news and links.
