Josh Johnson

Considering that the Lions were clamoring to sign him in 2019, a return to the NFL seems likely for the veteran journeyman. In 2020, Johnson flashed the potential that 13 different NFL teams saw in him throughout his career. At 33 he still offers some mobility, but he really makes his money putting the ball up downfield.

In just 4 starts, he put up 1076 yards, 11 TD’s and just 2 picks, going 2-2 in those starts. In an NFL season, that would’ve been 4,304 yards, 44 TD’s and just 8 interceptions.

He’s a savvy veteran who has the tools to get it done, and a team looking for a steady presence in their locker room would be wise to bring him in. He’s proven that he can either push a starter, mentor a young QB and even win some games if called on.

The veteran backup market is highlighted by Blake Bortles, Chase Daniel, Trevor Siemian and Colt McCoy. Johnson would offer a lot of upside, and would be a rare high upside backup with dynamic potential as a starter.

Potential Fits: Denver, New York Jets, New York Giants, Buffalo
