NFL Free Agency: Atlanta Falcons re-sign Mike Johnson

According to Jay Adams of the official website of the Atlanta Falcons, the Falcons have re-signed offensive lineman Mike Johnson to a one-year deal.

Further terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Johnson dislocated his left ankle and fractured his fibula during training camp back in early August and was forced to miss the remainder of the season, just one of the many reasons the Falcons struggled so badly in 2013 after just narrowly missing out on a trip to the Super Bowl a year earlier.

The Falcons selected Johnson in the third round of the 2010 draft with the 98th overall selection.

Before joining the Falcons, Johnson played for the Alabama Crimson Tide from 2006-2009. He was a consensus first team All American in 2009 and helped lead the Crimson Tide to a National Championship.

Johnson has appeared in 18 games for the Falcons in his career, making one star. He was mostly a backup and an extra blocker while playing in all 16 games in 2012. In fact, he even caught a touchdown pass as a goal line tight end.
