Cedric Benson
NFL RB, All American, tipsy Texan.
December 28, 1982 – August 17, 2019.
Aged 36 years.

Most recognized for: Once a stud running back for the Longhorns, Cedric was drafted 4th overall by the Bears in 2005. 2 seasons later, he was busted for drunk boating… which made him ripe for a trade to the handcuff-friendly Cincinnati Bengals. A couple of assault charges and a DUI later, Ced found himself brokering mortgage loans in Austin… when his motorcycle made a fiery collision with a minivan.
