Michael Johnson All But Delivered?March 11th, 2014
Could the Bucs be on their way to finally having an edge rusher who can breathe on an opposing quarterback? Strong rumors have only gotten hotter that the Bucs and Bengals free agent defensive end Michael Johnson’s aren’t just dancing, but are about to consummate their relationship in an intimate way.
What was strongly hinted as two sides having mutual goals, it seems Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports is putting aside the “rumors” and “sources” route and is telling Bucs fans they will hear an announcement later today that the Bucs do have their stud defensive end.
@JasonLaCanfora: When the Michael Johnson signing with the Bucs becomes official, I hear the deal will average $8.5M/year with around $24M guaranteed
Well, this will be one way to quell the outrage Bucs fans have that their team is doing their best to throw all-world cornerback into the nearest retention pond. Johnson better damn well be putting quarterbacks on the ground. Or, without Revis, Joe hopes Bucs fans have plenty of liquor available because here comes the 2012 sieve of a secondary again.
