All but one of the Bengals 11 draft picks are in the fold less than 24 hours before the team reports to Georgetown College. Richard Kopelman, the agent for third-rounder Michael Johnson, said Wednesday he has reached a four-year deal with the Bengals. Kopelman wouldn't reveal the terms but sources put the deal in the range of a $863,000 guarantee with a play-time escalator that can net Johnson more than a million in salary in the last year.
