RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Johnson was unable to claim a roster spot as a linebacker in the Saints' 3-4 defensive system, and is now a free agent after he was waived by the team in August.

2013

Johnson will compete for a roster spot, and potentially a starting position, at outside linebacker with the Saints. Johnson, out of tiny Tarleton State, could hold decent fantasy value if he is able to secure a starting position.
