Michael Johnson not expected to be back with the Bengals in 2014

Now that the Bengals have signed defensive end Carlos Dunlap to a contract extension, Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer believes Michael Johnson will not be back in 2014 after he plays out this coming season under the franchise tag.

With the salary cap in the NFL, teams can only afford to keep so many of their top players.  It sounds like Johnson will be the odd man out next year.
