Bengals beat writer Paul Dehner Jr. thinks BenJarvus Green-Ellis' spot on the roster may be in jeopardy.
Giovani Bernard will lock down the starting position with Jeremy Hill assuming the secondary, power role. Cedric Peerman will be kept because of his invaluable special teams experience and success at back in a pinch. The competition ends up being between Rex Burkhead, 24, and Green-Ellis, 29, with youth winning out, as it often does in the NFL.
There was a quote in the story by Marv Lewis that read "it's a young man's game," which is why Dehner, and many others, think Law Firm is let go at some point leading up to the season. Look for rookie Hill to be the change of pace back to Bernard and likely steal some short-yardage TDs. We rank Hill 39th and he's getting picked in the 11th round in early drafts.
