    David Johnson: 'It feels great to be back in practice'

    David Johnson has said that it "feels great" to be back in practice with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Yesterday, the tight end took part in his first drills with the team since tearing a knee ligament in a pre-season game against the Philadelphia Eagles last year.

    The 25-year-old told the team's website: "It feels great. I have been at it a long time. I was really excited to get back out there today, finally put on the pads and be out there with the guys.

    "I am confident. I am excited to get back out here. I know if I focus on getting out here and playing and doing what I need to do, everything will be all right. I feel great.

    "I knew it would be a long road. I just kept my faith in God and just kept working hard. I knew at the end I would be all right."

    Johnson could feature in the Steelers' pre-season game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday.

    Glad he feels great unfortunately he contributes very little to making the Steelers a better team.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    I wasn't a big DJ fan, but his game was starting to click for him last year before he got hurt. I'm curious how the Steelers will use him because they had started using him more like a FB.

    You must not remember his blocking because it wasn't anything much.

    After his first two seasons, it was hard to see why the Steelers were so infactuated with David Johnson. But last season besides good Blocking at the FB position, he did catch 12 passes. However as it goes to the Johnson & Johnson debate. I have to say I still like Will Johnson better. I don't know but it just seems to me that Will Johnson Blocks about as well as David does. And Will Johnson looks alot more comfortable and smoother coming out of the Backfield to catch flair passes and dump-off passes. So although I am Happy David is back and Healthy. I seriously doubt BOTH Johnson's make the final roster. And as stated, at this point, I like Will Johnson a bit better then David.

    Will Johnson is twice the player David Johnson ever will be. David Johnson IMO is a waste of a roster spot.

    DJ is very stiff, and has limited talent. It is what it is...a signing of a guy familiar with our system...due to injuries.

    I think Will's the slightly better blocker and David's the slightly better receiver. However, Will's getting better this offseason and I think his upside as a blocker and pass catcher is better than David. I like em both and think they both deserve an NFL roster spot somewhere. Wonder if we could trade one of em?
