Johnson on playing this year under the franchise tag
With Thursday being the first time back in the locker room, Bengals defensive end Michael Johnson said he was happy that Carlos Dunlap got a contract extension. The team tried to get something done with Johnson before the July 15 deadline for those who received the franchise tag but now will have to wait until the offseason.
"I knew they wanted to get something done with me, him and Geno. It just didn’t work out with me," Johnson said. "It is what it is. It’s not going to be a distraction or anything. We’re still going to go out and ball, and when it’s time to take another look at that next year, then we’ll do it."
Said Johnson of Dunlap's extension: "He’s done a lot of good things for us since he’s been here. He works hard. He deserves it."
