Larry Johnson: Officially Signs with Bengals

Posted on November 17, 2009 at 7:43 AM


As expected, Johnson has signed a one-year deal with the Bengals, the Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.


If Cedric Benson misses Sunday's game against the Raiders, Johnson could help the Bengals at running back along with current backup Bernard Scott. He's worth a speculative pickup in case Benson suffers a more serious injury down the stretch due to a very heavy workload, but Johnson's on-field performance with the Chiefs this season offered little to suggest that he's capable of being a reliable fantasy starter with limited carries going forward.
