Bengals agree to terms with Michael Johnson

The Cincinnati Bengals have agreed to terms on a four-year contract with third-round defensive end Michael Johnson, according to a league source.

Per the source, the deal includes an $863,020 signing bonus.

The total maximum value of the deal is $3.47 million, if a fourth-year escalator clause is triggered.  (It’s a two-level escalator based on his playing time.)

The 6’7″, 266-pounder registered 19 career sacks, 30.5 tackles for losses, 10 forced fumbles and three blocked kicks at Georgia Tech.

As a senior, Johnson lined up opposite University of Virginia offensive tackle Eugene Monroe and recorded a sack and two tackles for losses against the Jacksonville Jaguars’ first-round draft pick.

    Awesome. Between this guy, Maualuga, and Rivers, the Bengals should have some good youth in the front 7.

    This is why Eugene Monroe is such an overrated player. Everytime he played against a decent pass rusher in 2008 he gave up a sack. Michael Johnson absolutely owned him. He gave up 3.5 sacks his senoir year and he didn’t even have to play against the ACC’s best pass rusher, Everette Brown, because Virginia didn’t play FSU this year. In contrast, Andre Smith who is supposedly a run blocking specialist, gave up a grand total of 1 sack in the much tougher SEC.

    Hey 6rings,
    Should we tell them about the origins of your login?
    When they sent a rocket to Uranas, that’s, apparently, what they found.
