Bengals.com writer Geoff Hobson tweeted Tuesday night that the Bengals talks are progressing with WLB Brandon Johnson.

Sounds like talks are progressing with their own FA WLB Brandon Johnson

The signing of ST leader Brandon Johnson is key on 2 levels for the Bengals. The Bengals need to have one of their key Special Teams players back and the team needs all the depth it can get at the LB position.

The team has seemingly ended ties with LB Dhani Jones, LB Roddrick Muckelroy ruptured his achilles and Keith Rivers will be starting the season on PUP. Including Johnson, the team has lost 4 linebackers. After drafting Dontay Moch and adding Manny Lawson and Thomas Howard in FA Brandon Johnson would help bring the LB corps up to the depth it needs.
