Tank Johnson says he's re-signed with the Bengals

New, comments

Tank Johnson just tweeted that he and the Bengals have reached a deal. He was up late last night working out in preparation for talks with other teams, but indications are that he's staying put.

@TankJohnson99:

Cinci we got a deal! Very greatfull to The Browns and all the Who Dey Nation!!! I'm Baaaaaaaack!!!! Now let's win some more

This is a good move to solidify the defensive line rotation next year. Tank was a valuable asset, numbers aside, when he was playing, and provides much needed veteran depth and system familiarity on the defensive front.

Update: ESPN reports the deal is for 4 years. No other details were listed. Tank started 13 games for the Bengals last season and appears to have been popular in the locker room if Twitter is any indication.
