We mutually decided to cut back on what he was doing. I think he would honestly tell you the same thing. That wasn’t at the top of his list鈥?He was great about passing the torch to Trey. Trey was always great and respectful toward Boomer. Knowing Chris as well as I know him, he would want to stay out of Trey’s way. He thinks that Trey has earned this opportunity now… Boomer has always been great about that.
Johnson hasn’t actually played in a game since 2014.
In between his time with Gruden with the Bucs and Raiders, he spent time with the (deep breath) 49ers, Sacramento Mountain Lions of the UFL, Browns, Bengals, 49ers again, Bengals again, Jets, Colts, Bills, Ravens, Giants, and Texans.
