The Bengals have $54 million in cap space.

Possibly the top DE on the market giving his age and size, Johnson recorded career high 11.5 sacks last season and also added an INT and 52 tackles.

***Update***
The DE franchise price tag is $11.2 million.

I think this was expected, right? Obviously the Bengals can't let their best pass rusher get away.

Good move on their part, with all that cap space they can easily afford it too

It was expected that the Bengals would tag either Michael Johnson or Andre Smith. Just hope we can re-sign Andre Smith now...

Glad we got him back. The D line played way to well last year to let him walk

Not worried at all about that gun incident on the plane? I'll bet that made the decision of who to tag a lot easier though.

Geno Atkins is our best pass rusher, but I agree tagging Johnson was a no brainer imo.

I doubt it played in at all. That was an act of total ignorance and stupidity, not malice. It only proves that Andre forgot his brain at home, as well as the correct bag.

Probably my 2nd/3rd favorite player in the league. Glad he's proving the haters wrong one step at a time since he was drafted.

Too bad Jags probably won't pursue Andre. Would be cool to have two top 10 OTs from the 2009 draft class starting as the bookends.

Would have been silly to let him go with all the space they have.

We also have Mike Brown.

On a serious note, we have a lot guys to resign/extend soon. That cap space can disappear quickly after extending Geno...
