“There was plenty that we took from him from his past that we knew he did really well,” Johnson said. “And he opened up and was willing to be challenged in some areas, as well. We saw him make tremendous growth from the end of last year, through training camp. Bye week, we dove in on how he would improve as a player and thought we saw the dividends of that in the second half of the season. The good news is this, when he comes back in the building, we're going to have another plan of action for him to take another few steps forward, to where he can continue to progress and be an even better player than he was this past year. That's the exciting thing, and knowing him, he's going to embrace it and run with it.”
