Bengals Sign QB Josh Johnson, Cardinals Sign DE Frostee Rucker

Kelley L Cox-US PRESSWIRE

According to reports, the Cincinnati Bengals have signed quarterback Josh Johnson to be their backup behind Andy Dalton, taking the place of Bruce Gradkowski, who recently signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers to be their backup to Ben Roethlisberger:

The news is marginally relevant to the Browns because Johnson signed a deal with Cleveland heading into Week 17's game against the Steelers this past season. He ended up taking one snap after an injury to Thaddeus Lewis. The play ended in a sack/fumble that turned the ball over to Pittsburgh. Nonetheless, his name can be added to the long list of quarterbacks who have taken a snap in Cleveland since 1999.

In other former-Browns news, the Arizona Cardinals reached a one-year deal with defensive end Frostee Rucker today. The Browns released Rucker last month, so they will not be eligible to receive compensation for him next season (in draft picks). Rucker still has $4 million going against Cleveland's cap in 2013.
