Benson: "I'm not fit for jail"


Bengals running back Cedric Benson returned to Paul Brown Stadium Monday and talked to reporters about his experience in jail.

"I'm not fit for jail," Benson said.  "When you experience that, you realize how much you don't want to experience it again.  So, it was a nice little wake up call and it was nice to taste that in hopes I never have to do it again."

Benson served 5 days of a 20 day sentence for a bar fight last summer in Austin, Texas.  He was given less time for good behavior and also for work done while in jail.

"Just kind of want to get this behind me so I can start the season and, you know, you got things behind you and just focus on football."

Benson is the Bengals leading rusher and says he has not heard from the commissioner's office about any possible discipline from the league.
