HairOnFire Posted April 16, 2009 Report Share Posted April 16, 2009 Bengals keep restricted free-agent LB Johnson after his stellar seasonAssociated Press 2008 Statistics Games/Starts: 16/9Tackles: 83Sacks: 1.5Interceptions: 2CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to undisclosed terms with linebacker Brandon Johnson, a restricted free agent.Johnson, a three-year pro from Louisville, finished third on the Bengals with 83 tackles last season, receiving a chance to start in nine games after rookie linebacker Keith Rivers broke his jaw.Johnson was a fifth-round draft pick by the Arizona Cardinals in 2006 and played on special teams for two seasons. The Bengals signed Johnson as a free agent in 2008 and, after he had his breakout season, tendered Johnson a contract in February. That gave Cincinnati the right to match any offer made to Johnson by another team.Copyright 2009 by The Associated Press Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
