RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Johnson is penciled in as a starting outside linebacker in 2012, but Larry English will also be in the mix for significant action, so it remains to be seen exactly how the Bolts will split the playing time. Johnson was always a solid player in Baltimore and will certainly help shore up the unit, but his 60 or so tackles per year probably make him a borderline IDP option at best.
Johnson enjoyed a career high 73 total tackles last season. That should be considered a ceiling, however, especially with Johnson turning 30 this season.
Johnson had a solid 2009, recording 50 tackles, six sacks and two interceptions. The picks may have been an anomaly, he had only one in six seasons prior, but his returns are otherwise consistent even if unspectacular.
Johnson will once again start at outside linebacker providing solid, though not spectacular numbers for an IDP. Last season he recorded five sacks to go along with 57 tackles.
Johnson should be considered a sleeper IDP. He was a stalwart in run defense last season, notching 58 tackles and two sacks.
With Adalius Thomas gone, Johnson is being asked to step into the hybrid linebacker/defensive end role. Already agile for his size, Johnson shed 15 pounds to gain some quickness.
Not much of a pass-rusher despite being a defensive end.
Backup left defensive end.
