Tennessee linebacker A.J. Johnson will return to play his senior year for the Vols rather than pursue an early entry to the NFL. Tennessee coach Butch Jones announced the news Tuesday on his Twitter account. "Very excited to announce that (Johnson) will be a member of Team 118," Jones tweeted. Johnson has started 34 games in his three-year career. The native of Gainesviille, Ga., led the SEC in tackles in 2012 and had a team-high 106 tackles in 2013.
