Bengals cut Johnson | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

The Bengals have cut veteran DE Michael Johnson. He had been back with the team for 3 years after leaving briefly for Tampa in 2014 free agency. Overall, Johnson has played 8 years in Cincinnati. He just started the team's 3rd preseason game opposite DE Carlos Dunlap, and re-signing could still be an option. We'll see if the Bengals make any more moves on that front before altering our IDP projections for the team's younger DEs. Jordan Willis and rookie Sam Hubbard present intrigue on that front.

Recent Shark Bites

Just a day after the Bengals released him, multiple reports say DE Michael Johnson is re-signing with the team. It's not a surprising move, given that Johnson had been running as a starter in preseason. Expect him to reprise his 2017 role, perhaps ceding a few more snaps to the younger guys at the position.

Bengals DE Michael Johnson is active for today's game against the Jaguars. He's a weak IDP option, though, with a back issue that forced him out of last week's game early.

Bengals DE Michael Johnson (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Johnson put in limited practices Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday's. He's not worth waiting on for IDP owners, but we'll update his status Sunday in case you need to.

Bengals DE Michael Johnson (shoulder) is active for tonight's game against the Texans. He doesn't make for a strong IDP play against Houston, though.

Bengals DE Michael Johnson (calf) is active for tonight's game against the Giants after entering the night questionable.
