It was a rough day for the football world after the terrible news came down that former Texas Longhorns star and NFL running back Cedric Benson had lost his life as a result of a motorcycle accident that claimed an unnamed woman as well.
Many former teammates, family, and friends have sent out their condolences to the guy who meant so much to a whole bunch of people.
Hours after the news came down, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers took to Instagram and sent out a heartfelt message about his former friend.
“Very sad news today to hear of the passing of my friend and former teammate Cedric Benson. Ced and I became fast friends during his short stay in Green Bay, and would spend many lunch hours in the cafeteria talking about life and football. Ced was very smart and thoughtful and I always walked away from our conversations feeling like I learned something or wanted to go research something so that I could keep up with him in our conversations. Love and prayers to his family and friends, thanks CB for the inspiration, you will be missed. #05draftclass #GBP #RIP”
Thoughts and prayers to the Benson family.
