Brandon Johnson re-signs

The Bengals on Thursday re-signed linebacker Brandon Johnson, one of the team’s restricted free agents.

In 2008, his first year with the Bengals, Johnson had a breakout season, finishing second on the team in tackles (112). His playing time was limited early in the year, but he took advantage of a starting opportunity at midseason when linebacker Keith Rivers, Cincinnati’s top draft pick, was lost for the year to an injury. He led the team in tackles (90) over the nine games he started.

Johnson also ranked second on the team in QB hurries (10), tied for second in tackles-for-loss (five) and ranked fourth in passes defensed (seven).

Johnson joined the Bengals last season after two years with Arizona.

“We knew Brandon had good potential, but the way he came on last season was a very pleasant surprise,” said Bengals linebackers coach Jeff FitzGerald. “His production was outstanding. He proved himself as a player that you definitely want on the field, and we are glad to have him back.”
