Leonard Johnson Signs With Patriots

December 9th, 2015

belicheatThe pipeline of ex-Bucs to Foxboro continued today.

New England media reported that cornerback Leonard Johnson, cut by the Bucs after a 2015 preseason injury, is a new member of the Patriots following a workout. His recovery must be complete.

A prized Greg Schiano undrafted free agent, Johnson did some good things with the Bucs at corner and on special teams, but he never seemed to overcome his lack of speed, which kept him out of the NFL Draft back in 2012.

Ironically, Schiano man Rashaan Melvin, a former Bucs cornerback and Ravens goat, was waived to make room for Johnson.

Joe wishes Johnson well. The pride of Largo High, who has a new home in the East Lake area, is a fine young man.

    I liked LJ too. I understand the rap on him by most Buc fan comments, too slow, too small. Good Luck in the cold.

    Trying to get some info un us just in case the have to play us in the superbowl. Can never be too prepared!

    Bill will cut him in a week. This won’t be one of those players that do better with the Pats…I hope. If he does manage to stick thru the rest of the season, he’s got a shot at a super bowl though.

    Seems like a really good guy and one who was willing to put in the hard work to master his craft. I wish him luck!

    Did anyone else notice all of the draft picks over the past two years who are no longer with Tampa have all signed with other teams? Leonard Johnson will join Joey Iosefa in New England. Kaelin Clay just returned an 82 yard punt return in Baltimore. Robert Herron is in Miami. Kadeem Edwards in Jocksonville. Then of course we have Patrick Omemah of Chicago, who made PFF’s weekly best players at every position list and Mason Fosters fumble recovery in Washington. To think none of these players were good enough to make it in Tampa, just goes to show how talented this team really is.

    Good for him, he’s truly one of the good guys.
