Bengals Re-Sign RFA OL T.J. Johnson To Two-Year Deal


The Cincinnati Bengals announced Friday that they’ve re-signed restricted free agent OL T.J. Johnson. According to Jim Owczarski, the Bengals signed Johnson to a two-year contract.

Johnson figures to be in the mix to start at guard for the Bengals in 2016 now that they’ve lost Kevin Zeitler to the Browns in free agency.

Johnson, 26, is a former seventh-round pick of the Bengals back in 2013. He was waived coming out of the preseason during his rookie season, but was added to their practice squad and returned on a future/reserve contract in 2014.

The Bengals brought him back on a one-year contract last year and used an original-round tender on him a few weeks ago.

In 2016, Johnson was active for all 16 games and played a total of 95 snaps for the Bengals, according to Pro Football Focus.
