For the fourth time since free agency opened last month, the Bengals have re-signed a player who had left and gone away. On Thursday it was Josh Johnson, quarterback Andy Dalton’s backup from 2013, after he signed a one-year deal that figures to be for near the minimum.
The Bengals were thought to be interested in re-signing 2014 backup Jason Campbell, but there was talk he has been considering retirement and the Bengals moved back to Johnson, a seven-year veteran turning 29 next month.
All signs have been pointing to A.J. McCarron still getting dibs on the backup spot that has been manned by three different players under Dalton.

Week 18: Dalton vs Colts
Andy Dalton finished the regular season with a very up and down performance against the Steelers which really was a microcosm of his season. Inconsistency and lack of big plays hurt the QBs fantasy impact in 2014 after he was outstanding last year.
He did get his team to the postseason again, and we have seen how the Bengals have fared over the past three playoffs. They will be an underdog on the road in Indy, but there is some good news. The game is Sunday afternoon (we have seen Dalton's struggles in prime time) and he is playing the Colts who are 27th in aFPA to quarterbacks. The bad news is he was horrible against Indy in their meeting back in October where he only completed 47% of his passes and only threw for 126 yards.
He ranks in the bottom half of the eight quarterbacks playing Wild Card weekend so if you can avoid putting him in your playoff lineup, do so.
