Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Michael Johnson and defensive tackle Devon Still were the only players who didn't show up for Monday's voluntary workouts, according to Bengals.com.
Unlike the fiscally challenged Antonio Brown, the reason that Johnson and Still aren't in Cincinnati isn't due to things you'd normally expect this time of year. Johnson is at Georgia Tech "finishing classes" and Still is with his daughter Leah; Still was also at his alma mater on Saturday to observe Penn State's Spring Game.
All but two players appear to have shown. DE Michael Johnson finishing classes at Ga. Tech. DT Devon Still with daughter Leah.— Geoff Hobson (@GeoffHobsonCin) April 20, 2015
From most reports, Monday was a good day for the Bengals to start their offseason training program. For the next two weeks, players can do conditioning work as well as strength training. There will be a three-week window after that, allowing coaches to do individual work with players on the practice field -- no live drills or offense v defense drills are allowed. OTAs and mandatory camp kicks off after that.
