Tank wears a star on his helmet

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Tank Johnson is a Dallas Cowboy. Multiple news agencies have reported that the ex-Bear has reached an agreement to join the Cowboys Tuesday even though he has six more games to serve in an eight-game suspension that was handed down during the offseason.

Johnson will not face the Bears when Dallas comes to town Sunday night. The Cowboys signed him to fit into their 3-4 scheme as a nose tackle after losing Jason Fergsuon for the entire season in Week 1 with a torn biceps.

Johnson received a two-year contract without a signing bonus.

Who knows, maybe the Bears will face Tank and Dallas in the playoffs?

That would be some kind of reunion given the enormous support the franchise provided Johnson before he embarrassed them for the final time with his arrest in Gilbert, Ariz., only hours after the team's offseason program concluded. Johnson was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol. Before a blood test came back that showed he was just below the legal level of impairment in Arizona, the Bears had parted ways with him.
