NFL Free Agency: Tennessee Titans re-sign Antonio Johnson


The Tennessee Titans brought back one of their own free agents on Tuesday, agreeing to a deal with free agent defensive tackle Antonio Johnson, according to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.


Johnson was originally drafted with the 152nd overall pick in the fifth round of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Titans. Unfortunately, Johnson tore his ACL in training camp and missed the entire season. A year later, he was signed by the Indianapolis Colts after spending the first half of the 2008 season on the Titans’ practice squad.

Johnson played in the rest of the Colts’ games in 2008 and became a key contributor over the next four seasons with the Colts.

Before last season began, he left the Colts, re-joining the Titans as a free agent.

Johnson, a former Mississippi State Bulldog, made 22 tackles and 3.0 sacks in 16 games for the Titans last season.
