Tom Johnson Signing One Of ESPN's Most Underrated Free Agency Deals
After the initial wave of NFL free agency, Gordon McGuinness of ESPN Insider looked back and reviewed some of the most under the radar moves from the past few weeks aided by Pro Football Focus' grades and data.
Reviewing some of the most underrated signings of the offseason, McGuinness mentioned the Seahawks' free agent acquisition of defensive lineman Tom Johnson, who spent the past four seasons in Minnesota. Here's why Johnson's addition received recognition:
Losing Michael Bennett and Sheldon Richardson this offseason meant that the Seahawks had to find reinforcements on the defensive line, and they found that in Johnson.
