Former Chicago Bears running back and Texas Longhorns legend Cedric Benson has reportedly been killed in a motorcycle accident in Austin, Texas, that also claimed the life of an unnamed woman.
TMZ is reporting that Benson was reportedly driving his bike with a passenger when they got into an accident with another vehicle around 10 p.m. Saturday night.
The Chicago Bears took Benson with the fourth pick in the 2005 draft. He struggled to play with the team but did play in Super Bowl XLI. He then joined the Cincinnati Bengals, where he put up three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons from 2009-2011. After moving on to the Green Bay Packers in 2012, a fracture to his foot ended his career.
