CINCINNATI (AP) - Running back Larry Johnson has agreed to terms
with the Cincinnati Bengals to be one of their backups, giving the
AFC North leaders depth at the position, a person familiar with the
negotiations told The Associated Press.
Johnson reached the contract agreement Tuesday, according to the
person, speaking on condition of anonymity because the team had not
made an announcement. The Bengals have to make a roster move to
clear a spot for Johnson, who will be fourth on the depth chart at
The move came eight days after the Kansas City Chiefs let him go
as he was set to return from his second suspension in the last 12
months. The Bengals have one of the NFL's leading rushers this
season in Cedric Benson.
