The Cincinnati Bengals added some much-needed size on their defensive line by reaching a one-year agreement with defensive tackle Tank Johnson.
For Johnson, whose career started with the Bears and most recently continued with the Cowboys, he will get a chance to go back to a more natural position along the defensive line. Johnson will play the "three-technique'' for the Bengals, giving him the chance to do some pass rush and shoot the gaps to make plays. The Cowboys tried to make him a nose tackle in their 3-4 defense the past couple of years.
His agent, Jerrold Colton, told The Associated Press the Bengals' defensive scheme is a better fit for Johnson than his previous team, the Dallas Cowboys.
