Michael Johnson: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Johnson inked a five-year, $43.75 million deal with the Bucs on Tuesday, including a guaranteed $24 million, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Despite regressing to 3.5 sacks in 2013, Johnson notched a career-best 56 tackles (35 solo) with nine passes defended and two forced fumbles on the ledger. In five NFL campaigns, he's missed just one game, while racking up 26.5 sacks. He'll now act as a pass-rushing and run-stopping complement to defensive stalwarts Lavonte David and Gerald McCoy.
Johnson, who was franchised by the Bengals last year for $11.175 million, is a candidate to land a lucrative deal elsewhere this offseason, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Given the team's hefty financial commitment to fellow defensive lineman Geno Atkins, it seems unlikely that the Bengals are of a mind to spend what it would take to retain Johnson. In 15 games this past season, Johnson recorded a career-high 56 tackles, while adding 3.5 sacks and two forced fumbles.
Johnson had a monster game in the Bengals' win over the Browns, registering a sack among his three tackles, an interception and three tipped passes.

2013

Johnson had a breakout season in 2012, recording 11.5 sacks. The Bengals have a lethal pass rush heading into 2013 with the combination of Johnson and Geno Atkins (12.5 sacks last season).

2009

A third round pick in the 2009 draft, the Bengals are hoping he can bolster their pass rush.
