Will Bengals Sign Tank Johnson?

Tank Johnson might be just the guy to round out the team:

Chicago Bears' defensive tackle Tank Johnson was charged Thursday with six counts of possession of a firearm without a gun owner identification card after police found six guns at his home...

...three of the weapons seized from Johnson's house were powerful handguns: a .44 Magnum, a .50 caliber, and a .45 caliber. Two were assault-style rifles -- an AR-15 and a .223 caliber -- and one was a .308 Winchester hunting rifle...

Police who executed the search warrant also found 2¼ ounces of marijuana...

A 25-year-old woman and two toddlers also were at the home at the time of the search.

Wow. Drugs, guns and young 'uns. It's like that Twilight Zone episode where Bill Maher, Charleton Heston and Britney Spears are all at the same party.

And in other felony athlete news, former UC basketball player Jonathon Carson broke into a home, beat up a man, and then got shot several times by the man's wife.

(Seems like it was practically yesterday that I said it was good UC got rid of Bob Huggins, otherwise we'd have two local teams with rap sheets).
