While the Bengals seem to have a solid pair of running backs in Rudi Johnson and Chris Perry, there may be room for more, as the team may take a look at bringing in former Seahawk RB Shaun Alexander. Jim Steiner, the agent for Alexander, told the Cincy Enquirer in an email – “Making calls to teams. Bengals are on our list!”
Now who really knows the interest level on the part of the Bengals, but Alexander if he can get healthy and back to form is going to help some team in 2008. He has run for 9.429 yards in his career, and despite turning 31 on August 30th he appears to be ready to move on and continue his career elsewhere.
Other teams that may be in the mix for Alexander could be the Cardinals, Colts, Eagles, and Lions. If Cincy is serious though about Alexander, he would give that offense an extra boost should he get near his MVP form of 2005.
