Now Joe knows Bucs fans hollering for general manager Jason Licht to do something about the guard position can finally sit down and enjoy a cold beer. Here are the cold, hard facts about Johnson from Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times
New Bucs G Rishaw Johnson played 19 snaps in Chiefs’ preseason opener, then 13 last week. Looks like it was with third-team offensive line. — Greg Auman (@gregauman) August 21, 2014
Johnson played at Ole Miss before transferring to Division II California University of Pennsylvania.
You may now exhale. The offensive line has been upgraded.
“He played a little bit of center so that gives us some flexiblity,” Bucs coach Lovie Smith said of Johnson. “He’s a big athlete. Looks pretty good on video.”
