Bengals Announce Signings For QB Josh Johnson And TE Richard Quinn

Dean Mouhtaropoulos

The Cincinnati Bengals have announced the signings of two backup players on Saturday.

The Cincinnati Bengals have officially announced that they've signed quarterback Josh Johnson on Saturday, after reports on Thursday surfaced that an agreement was in place; Cincinnati doesn't make the agreements official until contracts are signed.

"We’ll be in a competitive situation for our backup quarterbacks," said Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis, "and Josh is known to (Bengals offensive coordinator) Jay Gruden from when they were both with Tampa Bay. We like Josh’s ability and experience added to our mix."

Along with Johnson officially being in the fold, the Bengals also announced that they've re-signed unrestricted free agent tight end Richard Quinn.

Quinn, who signed with Cincinnati during the regular season opener against Baltimore last season, stayed on the 53-man roster throughout the season but was inactive during each game. The Bengals tried finding a blocking tight end through free agency, with names like Kellen Davis (who signed with Cleveland) and Matt Spaeth (Pittsburgh). However, each left Cincinnati without a contract.
