Tank Johnson signs with....

3 posts in this topic

The Dallas Cowboys. They are still the same team as far as character guys that they always have been. Dallas lost its nose tackle in their season opener so position wise it makes sense.


Defensive lineman Tank Johnson, who cannot play until midseason because of an eight-game NFL suspension, reached a two-year agreement with the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday.

Terms of the deal were not available. The agreement was reached 10 minutes before a deadline imposed by the Cowboys.

The former Chicago Bear visited team officials Monday night and hoped to have a deal in place by Tuesday afternoon. Although it is unclear what he can do between now and when he is reinstated by the league, the former Chicago Bear at least has a future employer.

"For a lot of reasons, he really just felt the Cowboys were the right fit," Johnson's agent, Jerrold Colton, told The Associated Press. "He's so thankful to them for giving him this opportunity. He is very determined to prove they made a wise decision in believing in him."

Johnson's suspension resulted form a probation violation on a gun charge that included a two-month prison term that he served in the spring.

Then, in June, Johnson was stopped by Gilbert, Ariz., police for speeding. His blood alcohol level was found to be .072, under the presumptive limit for DUI in Arizona, and Johnson was not charged. Still, the fact that he was out late at night and had been drinking might discourage commissioner Roger Goodell from reducing the suspension.

Once the Bears learned of the Arizona incident, Johnson was immediately released.

Johnson will have a half-season to learn the Cowboys' nose tackle position, as starter Jason Ferguson suffered a season-ending biceps injury in Dallas' season-opening win over the Giants

The police go to his house more often than the paper boy. I'll bet he never plays a snap in Dallas.

He'll play. There were a few teams I thought of and the Cowboys are one of them, the others would be the Raiders or Bengals. Hey, he would be one of the lesser charged guys on the Bengals, they have some convicted murderers on their taxi squad, don't they LOL (just kidding)

A million dollar body and a 10 cent brain. We will miss his talent here in the Windy buy not his antics. Good riddance to bad rubbish! You can take the boy out of da hood but you can't take da hood out of the boy.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
