Green-Ellis replaces Cedric Benson, a free agent after leading the Bengals in rushing each of the last four seasons.

Green-Ellis was an unrestricted free agent after playing four seasons with New England. He topped 1,000 yards once in 2010. He has run for 24 touchdowns over the last two seasons and hasn’t lost a fumble.

He played in all 19 games last season as the Patriots reached the Super Bowl, running for 667 yards and 11 touchdowns in the regular season.

Broncos add WR Caldwell to Manning’s receiving corps

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos added another target for Peyton Manning as they signed free agent receiver Andre Caldwell.

The fifth-year player spent the last four seasons with Cincinnati, where he caught 124 passes for 1,172 yards and six touchdowns. Last year, he had 37 catches for 317 yards and three scores.

He can also return kicks, which is an area of need after the Broncos lost their top returner when Eddie Royal signed with the San Diego Chargers last week.
