RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Johnson had a productive season in 2015 as he backed up Sharrif Floyd and Linval Joseph at defensive tackle. Johnson notched a career-high 36 tackles to go along with 5.5 sacks in 16 games. The 31-year-old's tackle numbers could be reduced a fraction in 2016, but expect Johnson to have a similar role on the defensive line.
Johnson's career had a revival in Minnesota as he had 6.5 sacks last year in a reserve role off the bench. He'll likely continue to be part of the defensive line rotation, as he thrived under Mike Zimmer's defensive scheme.
He'll compete for a reserve defensive line role.
