Summary

Johnson had the best year of his career with Cincinnati in 2012. that season he totaled 36 solo tackles 17 assists and 11.5 sacks. In 2013 his sack total slumped to 4 but Johnson was still effective, forcing 3 turnovers and knocking down 10 passes. He signed with Tampa Bay last year and was released after a dismal season. Johnson has reached double digit sacks once in his six year career. He will have a hard time making in two in 2015. He is expected to miss at least a game or two due to a minor knee injury suffered early in camp. When healthy Johnson is a strong run defender on the edge and an excellent fit in the Bengals scheme. Look for a strong bounce back from him as we get deep into the season. (August 7)
