CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Cincinnati Bengals have confirmed that they haves signed a new running back.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis has been signed to the team. Details of his deal have not been announced, but early rumors were that it was a three-year deal.

Green-Ellis spent his first four years with the New England Patriots, and over the last two seasons he had 24 rushing touchdowns and no fumbles in more than 500 carries.

The signing effectively ends Cedric Benson's time as a Bengal. Benson was the Bengals' leading rusher each of the last four seasons. They also have running backs Bernard Scott and Brian Leonard.
