BenJarvus Green-Ellis will visit Cincinnati on Sunday and Monday to meet with the Bengals, according to a source.

Green-Ellis, 26, is an unrestricted free agent. He rushed for 667 yards and 11 touchdowns last season after breaking the 1000-yard mark and scoring 13 touchdowns in 2010.

Signed as an undrafted free agent in 2008, Green-Ellis has never fumbled in his four-year NFL career. He has been the leading rusher in New England for the last two seasons, but the Patriots drafted two running backs -- Shane Vereen (second round) and Stevan Ridley (third round) -- last spring who could be expected to play bigger roles.

The Bengals' leading back, Cedric Benson, is also an unrestricted free agent so Cincinnati may be looking for his replacement.
