Those are the words of Jim Wyatt from The Tennessean. And no, he wasn't just talking about Johnson during his 58-yard touchdown run against the Redskins on Thursday. Wyatt said Johnson has excelled throughout training camp.
"[Johnson] has looked fresher and more explosive than he was last season," Wyatt wrote Saturday. "He's catching the ball better than he did last season. Either Johnson is benefiting from having more running backs in camp to share the workload, or he's motivated by their presence."
He is still not going to run for 2,000 yards again. But Johnson will be catching more passes this year, and I think he is a solid RB2 this season. This is something Scott Atkins and Ben Standig disagreed with during our Google+ Hangout on Thursday.
I apologize for my webcam wackiness, and I hope you enjoy the look of my beautiful, ever-growing forehead.
