"It’s a tough position to judge with no pads on either side of the ball, but after the last of the workouts in mid-June the coaches clearly felt as good about him as they did when (Michael) Johnson re-signed back here on March 15. They saw the same guy that played 922 snaps at right end in 2013 and the same guy that played 870 more in 2012. And that, as head coach Marvin Lewis would say, is a good thing. The last time Johnson and defensive tackle Geno Atkins played a full year together, Atkins had a career-high 12.5 sacks while Johnson added a career-high 11.5."
