The Bengals have released Johnson, the Associated Press reports.

With Anthony Wright gone, Johnson is now Carson Palmer's top backup. The Bengals sincerely hope that they never have to use him. Don't bother with the handcuff here.
Johnson is battling Anthony Wright for the back-up quarterback spot. The winner has a chance for significant playing time if Carson Palmer (knee surgery) is not fully recovered in time to begin the season. The Bengals offense would suffer without Palmer, but with their other weapons either Johnson or Wright would have a chance to post semi-respectable numbers if they were called upon to start.
He will compete against Charlie Frye and Josh Harris for the No 2 spot behind starter Trent Dilfer. Johnson provides solid veteran experience in a young corps of quarterbacks.
.
If Michael Vick is to miss any action, Johnson is set to step in as the backup. Johnson performed well last preseason and was 19-of-25 for 257 yards with two TDs to lead the Falcons to a win in his one start last season. He's one of the better backups to put on your reserve roster. If Vick goes down, he can step right in and produce.
