The Cincinnati Bengals announced Saturday that they signed backup quarterback Josh Johnson and tight end Richard Quinn.
Johnson has completed 96 of 177 passes for 1,042 yards with five touchdowns and 10 interceptions in five seasons. He has made five career starts and will compete for a backup spot behind starter Andy Dalton.
"We'll be in a competitive situation for our backup quarterbacks, and Josh is known to (Bengals offensive coordinator) Jay Gruden from when they were both with Tampa Bay," coach Marvin Lewis said in a statement. "We like Josh's ability and experience added to our mix."
Johnson played for the Tampa Buccaneers from 2008-11 and spent the 2012 season with San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns. The 49ers cut him at the end of the preseason and he signed with Cleveland for the regular season finale.
Quinn was on the Bengals roster last year but did not play. He spent 2009 and '10 with the Denver Broncos and 2011 with the Washington Redskins.
