While Johnson was with the New England Patriots, he wasn't permitted to let loose and be his crazy self. “My personality was controlled last year," Johnson told Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald. "You didn’t hear me at all last year. Zero. Zilch."
Apparently, with the Dolphins, Johnson will be able to get back to his flamboyant ways.
“One of the things I like about being here, that’s so refreshing, and is such a weight off my back, is I can be me, whatever that entails," Johnson told The Miami Herald.
But will Johnson's antics lead to better numbers in the stat columns? Most say no.
Most sports bloggers believe Johnson will be a disappointment and unable to learn Miami's playbook. Can he learn the Dolphins' system? If you listen to the editors at Pro Football Weekly, the answer is a resounding "no."
Whether or not Johnson becomes an impact player remains to be seen. To take that a step down, whether he even makes the final 53-man roster remains to be seen.
Either way, it will be a nice pickup for HBO and their Hard Knocks series.
