Found December 16, 2011 on Football Insiders:

Cedric Benson signed a one year deal with the Bengals this past off season, but according to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer the Bengals will not bring Benson back in 2012, so they will be looking for a back to fill Bensons spot moving forward.  The perfect back to replace Benson could be current Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, who is going be a free agent after this season. 

The Seahawks could use the franchise tag on Lynch if they can’t come to an agreement so that might derail the Bengals from going after Lynch, but if the Seahawks let Lynch test the free agent waters don’t be surprised if the Bengals make a hard push for Lynch’s services.
