    The Cincinnati Bengals have not signed a franchise-tagged player to an extension since running back Rudi Johnson in 2005, that streak figures to continue for at least another year.

    The deadline to sign franchise players to long-term deals is just a week away. "All indications" are that the Bengals will allow defensive end Michael Johnson to play under the tag this season, according to Joe Reedy of The Cincinnati Enquirer.

    Johnson's $11.175 million salary would set the franchise's unofficial record for highest one-year base in a single season.
