Career

2015: In his 9th season in the CFL, his second with the Ottawa REDBLACKS, Johnson was once again a dominant defensive back with 54 tackles, 5 interceptions and four fumble recoveries. Just like in 2011 with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, his success on the field contributed to the REDBLACKS dream season who got its ticket to the Grey Cup Final in only its second season in operation.

 

Personal

Born in Erie, Pennsylvania, Johnson is entering his tenth season in the CFL, his first with the Alouettes. In 2011, while with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, he became the first defensive back in Canadian football history to be voted the CFL’s Most Outstanding Defensive Player. That year, his exceptional play helped lead the Bombers to the Grey Cup Final. Johnson has participated in three Grey Cup Finals since he joined the CFL. His first was in 2007, with the Saskatchewan Roughriders who won the trophy. He went back to the Grey Cup fi nal in 2011 with the Bombers and last November with the Ottawa REDBLACKS.
