Vet watch begins

With the Ken Hamlin visit on Wednesday, the post-draft veteran watch begins.

But the Bengals wasted no time claiming a kid Tuesday when they plucked Cedric Peerman from waivers from the Lions. The Bengals eyed the 5-9, 210-pound Peerman before the Ravens drafted him in the sixth round last year and hopped all over him when Detroit cut him Monday.

They are looking for a backup that can go behind Cedric Benson, Brian Leonard and Bernard Scott, and be able to tote it 20 times in a game if Benson has to miss any length of time.

Here’s a prediction: The Bengals will find that guy when he gets cut in the preseason, and the guess is that it will be a guy with some pretty good experience.
