MILWAUKEE -- Free agent running back Cedric Benson has visited the Green Bay Packers, who may be looking to boost their depth at running back.

Agent Eugene Parker confirmed Friday that Benson visited Green Bay, but did not indicate that a deal was in place.

ESPN reported earlier Friday that Benson had visited the team and was expected to sign.

Benson is a free agent after four seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals. He had 273 carries for 1,067 yards and six touchdowns rushing last season and has surpassed the 1,000-yard rushing mark in each of the past three seasons.

The Packers did not re-sign veteran free agent Ryan Grant in the off-season, leaving James Starks as the most experienced member of a young backfield.
