Brandon Johnson re-signed; Mickens waived

Posted Apr 15, 2010


Johnson
The Bengals on Thursday re-signed linebacker Brandon Johnson, who had become a restricted free agent on March 5.

Johnson is a fifth-year player in 2010, which will be his third season with Cincinnati.

Last season, Johnson played in 16 regular-season games with three starts. He also started the team’s Wild Card playoff game. In the regular season, Johnson finished seventh on defense with 67 tackles, and he tied for second on special teams with 12 tackles. He also recorded 1.5 sacks, a fumble recovery and three passes defensed.

Johnson originally was a fifth-round draft pick of the Arizona Cardinals in 2006. He played in nine games over two seasons with the Cardinals in 2006 and ’07, then signed with Cincinnati as a free agent in March of ’08. He played in 16 games with nine starts for the Bengals that year, finishing second on the team with 112 tackles.

Also Thursday, the Bengals waived cornerback Mike Mickens.

Mickens, who last season was a rookie from the University of Cincinnati, spent five regular-season games and one postseason game on the Bengals practice squad. The team had signed him to its offseason roster on Jan. 15.

Originally a seventh-round draft pick of Dallas last year, Mickens also spent time on the Cowboys practice squad and on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 53-player roster prior to signing to the Bengals practice squad.
