Bucs look to DE Johnson to bolster pass rush

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) One of Tampa Bay's top priorities this offseason is improving one of the NFL's weakest pass rushes, an effort the Buccaneers launched with the signing of Michael Johnson in free agency.

The Bucs signed the former Cincinnati defensive end to a five-year deal worth nearly $44 million and are banking him helping coach Lovie Smith transform the Bucs from a struggling franchise that's missed the playoffs six consecutive seasons into a division title contender.

Johnson had a career-best 11 1/2 sacks for the Bengals two years ago, and Smith is counting him to be the same type of disruptive player for the Bucs in 2014.
