Free Agent Target
LB Derrick Johnson (Signed with Raiders)
Derrick Johnson was a 1st Round Pick in 2005. He’s 6’3” 242 pounds and is 35 years old. Derrick Johnson is a 4 time Pro Bowler, was a First Team All Pro in 2011, and a Second Team All Pro in 2015. In his 13 year career he’s played in 182 games and started 169 of them. Every year he’s played in almost every game if not every game except for in 2014 when he only played in one game. Johnson has had 5 seasons with 100+ tackles. In his career he has 1,151 tackles, 27.5 sacks, 78 pass deflections, 14 INTs, 4 TDs, 22 forced fumbles, and 8 fumble recoveries. He also has played in 6 playoff games adding an additional 28 tackles and 1 sack. Johnson has played everywhere as a LB. He’s played as LOLB, LB, MLB, ROLB, LILB, and RILB. Derrick Johnson has good speed, he can cover well, and he is very good against the run. He is a well rounded player and brings great veteran leadership and experience to the locker room. If the Eagles can’t re-sign Nigel Bradham I think Derrick Johnson would be a good signing on a 1 year or 2 year contract until they can figure out what to do with the LB position for the future. I also think Johnson would be interested coming here because his career is coming to an end and he definitely wants a chance to win a Super Bowl. Johnson shouldn’t cost too much especially on a short term deal. I would say probably $2M-$4M a year but most likely on the cheaper side.
