Lighter George Johnson ready to rumble for Detroit Lions again

Lighter George Johnson ready to rumble for Detroit Lions again
lighter-george-johnson-ready-to-rumble-for-detroit-lions-again
George Johnson played at 270 pounds during his two seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers,[url=http://www.steelersfootballauthentics.com/anthony-chickillo-jersey-authentic]Authentic Anthony Chickillo Jersey[/url], about 10 pounds heavier than he was during his career year with the Detroit Lions in 2014.

When Johnson worked out for the Lions after the Bucs released him earlier this month, the team asked him to slim back down to its preferred playing weight of 260 pounds.

So for the past few weeks,[url=http://www.steelersfootballauthentics.com/jesse-james-jersey-authentic]Womens Jesse James Jersey[/url], Johnson has followed the every-man approach to weight loss. He woke up early and went for a run or walked his dog. He ate smaller meals with more vegetables.

And Wednesday, a trimmer Johnson signed a one-year deal to return to the Lions and provide pass-rush help.

"Even though you can have more muscle,[url=http://www.steelersfootballauthentics.com/eli-rogers-jersey-authentic]Authentic Stephon Tuitt Jersey[/url]," Johnson said. "When you’re carrying less, but it’s still you’re carrying more (weight), it’s like you’re not dragging a sled behind you so you’re playing a little bit more quicker. Your movements are more precise."

Johnson had six sacks for the Lions in his only season with the team in 2014,[url=http://www.steelersfootballauthentics.com/]Womens Chris Boswell Jersey[/url], then was traded to the Buccaneers after signing a restricted free agent offer sheet the following spring.

Johnson said leaving the Lions was "something I didn’t want to do," and he said his weight gain affected his play with the Buccaneers.

Johnson had 23 tackles and no sacks in 11 games with the Bucs in 2015, then missed all of last season with an injury.

"Just wasn’t as precise as I used to be, but when I got away, I was more precise with a lot of things I did. I was honed into my technique and things like that," he said. "When I was here, I got away from it. I started feeling like there was a lot of things I can get away with and I also got away from the things I do best. So it kind of just offset, I didn’t get the sacks that I needed."

 Anthony Zettel and Cornelius Washington,The Lions hope Johnson can be part of their defensive end rotation behind Ziggy Ansah, and Johnson said he's excited to reunite with head coach Jim Caldwell and defensive line coach Kris Kocurek.

"They just want you to go, they don’t want you to read, they just want you to go. They don’t want you to think," he said. "They don’t care about anything else, they just want you to attack. If you’re attacking then you’re not reacting, you’re just going after it."

Study guide: The Atlanta Falcons led the NFL in scoring last season (33.8 points per game) and had one of the most dynamic offenses in recent history.

They were so good that Lions offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter said he studied the offense this off-season in hopes of improving his own team.

"They scored a bunch of points, and I think a lot of offensive guys in the league are going to watch a team like that," Cooter said. "They showed up all over different cut-ups if you’re watching touchdowns or whatever. So yeah, really successful year last year, they had a really good, that has a productive, successful year and did a lot of things well."

So what did Cooter learn from his film review?

"I'll keep that to myself," he said.

 preview,[url=http://www.steelersfootballauthentics.com/]Womens Joe Haden Jersey[/url],Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Minnesota Vikings: Prediction, pick to win

 32-22. The Vikings won the last meeting in 2014 in Tampa Bay,SERIES HISTORY: 55th regular-season meeting. Vikings lead series,[url=http://www.steelersfootballauthentics.com/jesse-james-jersey-authentic]Authentic Jesse James Jersey[/url], but the Buccaneers had won six straight before that. This is the first meeting at Minnesota's 2-year-old stadium.

KEYS TO THE GAME: With uncertainty at the quarterback position,000-yard seasons. If Case Keenum starts,[url=http://www.steelersfootballauthentics.com/eli-rogers-jersey-authentic]Womens Eli Rogers Jersey[/url], the Vikings will have to bank on riding a dominant defense that can reach a higher level when there's home-field advantage. If Sam Bradford plays, the first QB in NFL history to start a career with consecutive 4, the Vikings have a better chance of trading blows with Jameis Winston,[url=http://www.steelersfootballauthentics.com/]Authentic Chris Boswell Jersey[/url], the Vikings will need a more conservative approach and rely on rookie running back Dalvin Cook to continue playing with quickness, strength and the kind of speed that makes him a threat to score every time he slips through a whole or beats the defense to the corner.

The Bucs had a great defensive performance in the season opener against the Bears. But as coach Dirk Koetter has said, they can't count on getting four turnovers in the first half every Sunday.

The Vikings are a pretty disciplined team under Mike Zimmer. Tampa Bay has to prepare as if Bradford will be at quarterback Sunday, even though he missed last week's game in Pittsburgh and is nursing a knee injury.

Getting pressure on Bradford will be the key. He's not that mobile to begin with after two ACL surgeries and now swelling. He played lights out in the season opener against the Saints. But Bradford will try to rely more on Cook.

The Bucs played the run extremely well last week, limiting the Bears to only 20 yards on the ground. They also jumped into a 3-4 at times.

--Vikings C Pat Elflein vs. Bucs DT Gerald McCoy. Elflein, has been outstanding. He was part of the line that dominated the Saints in Week 1. In Week 2 at Pittsburgh, a rookie third-round draft pick, he was the only lineman not to be penalized. McCoy is a force inside. He had four QB pressures against the Bears last week.

--Bucs QB Jameis Winston vs. Vikings S Andrew Sendejo. When the Vikings use free safety Harrison Smith closer to the line of scrimmage and put Sendejo in a single-high look, this won't matter. If the Bucs can protect long enough, quarterbacks and receivers look to take advantage of Sendejo's lack of ideal speed and shallow sets. If the Vikings get pressure on Winston, Winston could find receivers getting past cornerback Trae Waynes while Sendejo is out of position.

 Brown only caught three balls for 28 yards. Against the few zone looks the Vikings showed,PLAYER SPOTLIGHT: Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes. Rhodes shut down Antonio Brown last week in Pittsburgh. With Rhodes shadowing him, Brown had two more catches for 34 yards, shifty, [url=http://www.steelersfootballauthentics.com/anthony-chickillo-jersey-authentic]Womens Anthony Chickillo Jersey[/url],speedy DeSean Jackson and the bigger, including a 26-yarder on a busted coverage. The Bucs throw a lot of different skill sets at receiver with the small, stronger Mike Evans.

FAST FACTS: Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston opened his season last week by throwing for 204 yards and a TD, good for a 91.5 QB rating, [url=http://www.steelersfootballauthentics.com/]Authentic Joe Haden Jersey[/url],and has compiled a QB rating of at least 85 in five of the last six road games. .[url=http://www.steelersfootballauthentics.com/eli-rogers-jersey-authentic]Authentic Eli Rogers Jersey[/url],.. Buccaneers LB LaVonte David bagged nine tackles and a fumble recovery last week. When Tampa Bay last played Minnesota in 2014, and has at least five catches in six of his last seven games. ... Vikings DE Everson Griffen registered two sacks last week, David finished with 14 stops and three TFLs. ... Vikings WR Stefon Diggs has caught three TD passes in the last three games,[url=http://www.steelersfootballauthentics.com/eli-rogers-jersey-authentic]Womens Stephon Tuitt Jersey[/url], the ninth multi-sack game of his career.

PREDICTION: The Vikings are a lot more dangerous with Sam Bradford under center than Case Keenum. If Bradford is unable to play, that puts a lot of pressure on a defense that tends to play better at home. But the Buccaneers can give a defense a lot to think about, and their superiority on offense makes the difference.
