Pro Football Talk is reporting that Ed Johnson was possibly cut due to his grievance stemming from last year and the front office is claiming performance as an excuse to bypass a possible second grievance by Johnson. If this is the case, then I'm very disappointed in the front office. However, 18to88.com has a breakdown of Johnson's performance woes against Tennesse.
Still, I feel like there's something that's not being said. The quality of Johnson's performance aside, our run defense has improved so much with him in the lineup that I have trouble believing it is simply a matter of performance.
