Some very sad news to report today: former fourth overall pick and Chicago Bears running back Cedric Benson has passed away. Cedric was a Bear from the 2005-07 seasons. He spent the next four seasons in Cincinnati with the Bengals and finished his career with a one-year stint in Green Bay.

He was involved in an apparent motorcycle accident late last night in Austin, Texas. There was another fatality involved in the accident however; there are no more details at this time.

Our deepest condolences go out to the family and all those involved. We will update as soon as more details emerge.

**UPDATE**

Per TMZ Sports, Benson’s motorcycle crashed into a minivan. He had a passenger with him on the back of the motorcycle who also passed and has yet to be identified. It appears that a fire ignited after the collision. The people in the minivan survived with injuries and are not expected to be charged. Poor visibility and speed are suspected here.
