Ten days after extending a tender offer to restricted free agent T.J. Johnson, the Cincinnati Bengals have signed the offensive lineman to a two-year contract.

A fourth-year player from South Carolina, Johnson is expected to compete for the starting spot at right guard after Kevin Zeitler signed with the Cleveland Browns.

Johnson appeared in all 16 games last year and started at left guard in the season finale.

“T.J. has raised his level of play every year he’s been with us,” offensive line coach Paul Alexander said. “He is smart, tough and reliable. It’s great to know he’s back.”
