In 2014, receiver Charles Johnson went from the practice squad in Cleveland to a key part of the passing game in Minnesota. Last year, Johnson was MIA for most of the season.
Now, Johnson is making a good impression as he tries to re-establish himself.
“That’s what I do, I catch footballs,’’ Johnson said over the weekend, via Chris Thomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. “It’s no surprise to me, it shouldn’t be a surprise to others. If it’s a surprise to you, that’s fine.’’
Stefon Diggs is quickly becoming the real deal, the story said, and Laquon Treadwell was a round one draft pick. That all makes it harder for Johnson to get on the field and to get the ball in his hands. Johnson is currently buried down our list of WRs as a result coming in at 137.
