Again this thread confirms how basically sheeplike and moronic most fans are. David Johnson is good depth, strong solid blocker. Good teammate. Profootballfocus says it well about the comparison between Will Johnson and David Johnson. Will Johnson is marginally better as an athlete and offensive player. David Johnson is far superior as a blocker. Final analysis David Johnson is a better player. But let's get the morons all aboard the hate on DJ train, choo-choo.
Does this mean that Leonard Pope won't be returning?
I'm not a big fan of David Johnson, whose best game as a blocker was probably the preseason game where he got hurt.
That said, this signing means absolutely nothing. He probably signed for the minimum and is not guaranteed to make it through camp. This is what the Steelers do; they make sure that they have people under contract at every position before the draft so they can take the BPA. As they see things, Paulson is the only healthy TE on the roster. Johnson gives them 2 and gives them competition for Will Johnson at FB. DJ is not even guaranteed a roster spot and this move likely has no cap impact. DJ is simply insurance, nothing more.
Hall of Famer
Does Haley use a FB in his offense cause that is really what David Johnson is?

Really? I thought Will Johnson proved this year that he was a better blocker than David Johnson has ever been at any point in his career.
