Adam Schefter is reporting that the Buccaneers are in serious talks with Bengals free agent DE Michael Johnson. After the Vikings gave Everson Griffin a big extension, a year after giving Brian Robison an extension…the reunion of Mike Zimmer and Johnson seem to be non-existent. Frazier and Lovie Smith are smiling ear to ear.
Buccaneers and Bengals free-agent DE Michael Johnson in "serious discussions."

More specifics: Sources: DE Michael Johnson has agreed to a 5-year, $43.75M deal with 24M guaranteed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
