Chargers Sign OLB Jarret Johnson To 4-Year Deal

By Ernie Padaon


The Chargers inked OLB Jarret Johnson to a 4-year deal. He will likely be the starting outside linebacker opposite of Shaun Phillips. Johnson was one of the top outside linebackers available. He doesn’t rush the passer well, but he is stout against the run.

Here is what Walter Football has to say about him:

Jarret Johnson doesn’t rush the passer well despite playing outside linebacker in a 3-4. He’s amazing in all other facets of the game, however. He’s one of the most underrated players in the NFL.

With the signing of Johnson, could we got DT Dontari Poe in the first round? Or we could go David DeCastro now.

Another nice signing by AJ.
