Giants To Sign Former Duke CB Leonard Johnson
The New York Giants are still involved in the market for free agents.
The team is reportedly planning to sign former Duke cornerback Leonard Johnson to boost their relatively inexperienced and underwhelming cornerback group.
An undrafted free agent signing a three-year contract after suffering an injury? Given that Johnson is an undrafted free agent who has never been signed by an NFL team, it is expec
The 6-foot, 194-pound Johnson tore his ACL while getting ready for the draught the previous year, and most teams essentially forgot about him.
Throughout his four years with the Blue Devils, Johnson racked up 165 tackles, intercepted six passes, and deflected 16 others.
An average-speed turn with long legs and a steep hump. Johnson is persistent throughout press coverage, keeps trying after the catch point, and makes late breaksups.
Johnson appears to be a cornerback camp body who might have enough interesting anecdotes to stay on a practise squad.
If signed, Johnson would largely serve as a depth addition for the Giants, who are rumored to be considering dipping into the deep cornerback class in 2019.
