Report: L.J. expected to sign with Bengals
Former Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson was en route to Cincinnati on Monday and, barring a last-minute breakdown, he expects to sign with the AFC North-leading Bengals, a source familiar with the negotiations told ESPN's Michael Smith.
A deal, if consummated, is expected to be for the prorated league minimum.
The Bengals, along with several other teams, first expressed interest in Johnson last week as depth behind Cedric Benson, who suffered a hip injury in Sunday's 18-12 victory at Pittsburgh.
If Johnson learns the offense quickly, it stands to reason he could be active for the Bengals on Sunday against the Raiders.
