The Cincinnati Bengals announced DT Tank Johnson has been released ending his two-year tenure with the team. Johnson now becomes a free agent eligible to sign with any team. If he's in shape, he should be able to find another team in free agency.
Johnson's had an up-and-down career. He was the Chicago Bears second round pick in the 2004 draft and stayed with the team for three years before being arrested on gun charges in 2007. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell ultimately hit him with an eight-game suspension.
He was subsequently released by the Bears and joined the Dallas Cowboys, where he served his suspension and returned to football.
Johnson is a 29-year old defensive tackle who can be a disruptive player at times so he should find another home. He was atop the Bengals defensive tackle depth chart last week.
