Cincinnati has a plan. Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis believes that a powerful running game gives him an advantage in the AFC North. It's old school in a way for a division was once run-oriented that's slowly transformed into a pass-first division with quarterbacks like Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger and Baltimore's Joe Flacco respectively.
Unfortunately the Bengals aren't stocked with a collection of productive parts right now. BenJarvus Green-Ellis is the team's only running back signed in 2013 with reasonable expectations to contribute next season, though Cedric Peerman is expected back as a restricted free agent.
Joe Reedy with the Cincinnati Enquirer argues that the Bengals should address running back during the 2013 NFL draft with a speed/scat back to compliment the tough down-hill style of BenJarvus Green-Ellis, and there's enough to incoming talent to appease the need.
