Cedric Benson was killed in a motorcycle accident in Austin on Saturday evening.
Benson posted a photo of a BMW motorcycle on his Instagram account with the caption “My Saturday Evening” earlier in the day.
Benson’s death came three days after he appeared in a Travis County courtroom and was found guilty of the lesser charge of obstruction of a passageway in connection to a 2017 drunken driving arrest in downtown Austin.
Benson was the No. 4 overall pick by the Chicago Bears in 2005 out of Texas.
