Former New England RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis has agreed to a 3-year deal with the Bengals, where he’ll likely assume the starting role when the 2012 season opens.
In New England last year, Green-Ellis rushed for 667 yards and 11 touchdowns for the Patriots. His best season came in 2010, when he rushed for 1,008 yards and 13 touchdowns. In the past two seasons alone, Ellis has 24 rushing TDs. In that same time frame, Bengals runningbacks have accounted for 17.
