    Roger Staubach missed 4 years serving time in the Navy after graduation, so there is a bit or precedent. It will be tough for Johnson but it has been done before.

And if I'm wrong I'll wear it.
    I mean, crazier things have definitely happened. However, there aren't really any consequences for being wrong with guaranteeing on a message board, so it doesn't really matter that much, I suppose.

    It's the highest contract they've ever given an undrafted player.

    So...I read somewhere that he has not played a snap on defense yet, but had actually looked pretty good on STs....has anyone noticed the same? For some reason, this guys story has me kind of pulling for him.

    Did he play on Friday? He didn't register any stats and I didn't see the game.

    He played some STs.

    (14:13 - 4th) B.McManus kicks 60 yards from DEN 35 to WAS 5. K.Bibbs to WAS 22 for 17 yards (A.Johnson).

    Thanks for the info, they hadn't given him credit for a tackle when I checked the boxscore after the game. But it does change a lot, such as King being credited with an 18 yard reception and Chubb's half sack first being shared with Miller, then Walker, then Miller again.

    I think you were right. With Zaire Anderson being cut AJ Johnson has probably made the team

    Yes it was. He also made a hard hit on kickoff coverage the previous game, IIRC.

    Yeah, he had one against the Bears and another against the Redkins. Both were hits that made him stand out. The TFL against the Cardinals probably sealed the deal for him.

    Which is why I thought it was easy to see a path for him to make the roster. All it took was showing a glimpse of something.

    No way he makes ANY final 53 in the NFL. He had teams bidding on him to add him to the practice squad. Not to be on a roster, because he's not ready to be on an NFL roster. It's insane for anyone to think he is.
    So...about that
