As you can see from Mayfield’s social media post, the signal-caller couldn’t be happier with Berry getting things done here. Per NFL insider Mike Garafolo, Johnson’s contract with the Rams is for three years and $33.75 million. That’s a pretty big chunk of change, but there’s no question the speedy safety is worth every penny.
Last season for the Rams, the four-year veteran posted a head-turning 105 total tackles, one interception and eight pass deflections. He was a huge part of the Rams defense that finished ranked No. 1 in the league. Now, Johnson will look to fly all over the field and make some big plays for the Cleveland defense.
The Browns are coming off a superb year in 2020, going 11-5 and upsetting the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Wild Card Round. Come 2021, the team will be ready to make plenty of noise. They’re off to a great start in that department by beating out other teams to land Johnson’s services.
