Also, apparently he's been training with Kyle Wellwood.

He probably drinks & eats at C C Sabathia's place every day during the summer, that's why he's so ****ing fat

Actually I think Benson is in jail right now...

Cedric Benson is already in jail

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on August 31, 2011, 8:36 AM EDT

AP
So much for Cedric Benson spending his bye week in jail.

Instead, the Bengals running back arrived in Austin, Texas on Tuesday night to surrender himself to authorities.

Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports Benson is expected to spend seven days in Travis County Jail assuming he gets credit for good behavior. (He also has to give prison guards fantasy football advice.)

Benson must also complete 30 hours of community service.

Benson expects to get released by the morning of September 6 at the latest. That means he should be back at practice next week in time for Wednesday’s practice and be ready for the season opener against the Browns.

It’s a unique way for Benson to spend the last week of the preseason, but ultimately the Bengals must be pleased it won’t interrupt their season. (Barring a league suspension.)

The funny part is that Buff has always been 280..

The guy is only 6-5 or 6-6...

The guy can still skate at that size too...

For his size and weight it's amazing how good he is and how fast he is..

I'd take him back on the Hawks in a nanosecond.

No. He hasn't.

Yeah he is.........

Have you ever seen the guy in real life?

He's huge.....

He may have been 260 when he was drafted but hes gained weight and height since then (like most players do)....

HawksFan74 09-02-2011 09:49 PM

I'm pretty sure Buff was not 280 while he was on the Hawks. Whatever he's weighing in at, I'm expecting a disappointing season if he's still at D.

Yeah I did, I've seen him since his first prospects camp when he was a 265 pound draftee....he has most certainly NOT been 280 pounds during his tenure as a Chicago Blackhawk on the big club. And yeah, I've seen him since those years when he was in fact a Blackhawk and he did not weigh 280. He was a thick boy but 280 he was not. Anyone who thinks he ever weighed 280 during his playing days as a Chicago Blackhawk is delusional. There's a reason this has made news. Anyone who knows anything knows he's never been that overweight.

Bring Back GLR 09-03-2011 03:27 AM

Buff has always been around the 240-255 at the most.

DungeonK 09-04-2011 01:22 AM

Pretty sure that Buff was around 280 last season

Sleight Of Hand 09-04-2011 02:58 AM

Playing weight I would say is more towards the 250 side than the 290 side. 290 is an NFL lineman. He is not built like that. But I am not looking at his scale on game days either.

I personally know Dustin.
I have known him since he was 17.
I scouted him....saw him play 100+ games live in junior.
In junior he was a lb or 2 shy of 290 lbs.
He played for the Hawks at weights reaching 280 lbs and never was less than 258....briefly.
Most of the time on the Hawks he was 265- 278 lbs.

Regardless....he made a mistake and will pay the consequences.
He is a heck of a nice person and he will put this behind him.

As a lifelong Hawk fan I wish he was still with Chicago.

Sarava 09-04-2011 07:00 PM

I agree with Leo in wishing he was still on the Hawks and wish the guy the best.

Also it should be pointed out that 280 pounds as a 17-18 year old is far different (worse) than 280 pounds as a 26 year old man. I'm sure he will be fine.

Definitely have nothing against him personally and felt bad that this happened. I knew he was up in the 260's with the Hawks, never knew he was up at 278 with the big club at any time. You obviously know better than I do so I'll take your word for it. Regardless, the entire story was surprise news. Hopefully all is well for him going forward as I have no ill will towards him and wish he was still here as well.
