There is no comparison these days between the Seahawks and Redskins. So former Seattle and current Washington safety Jeron Johnson believes he must be careful not to push everything he learned from his old team onto his new one. He prefers to just transfer over what will help his teammates and himself. Johnson is the lone member of the Redskins secondary that not only played for winning teams, but participated in the last two Super Bowls. He played behind the premier combination of Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas in Seattle. He is now a starter on a team that must improve greatly to contend for a title. "I had to shake myself out of comparing everything to Seattle because I'm in a new situation," Johnson told ESPN. "I'd definitely love to have the success we had in Seattle. I bring a little knowledge I did obtain from Seattle. I just want to share the knowledge. I don't want to be Seattle. I want to have our own identity, but who wouldn't want to do the things they've done? "So it's automatically, 'I did this in Seattle and in Seattle I did that.' I have to shake that whole mentality and get on with what the Redskins are doing now." Johnson played in 15 of 16 games last season and finished with 12 tackles.
The Redskins are signing former Seahawks safety Jeron Johnson to a two-year, $4 million deal, reports NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Johnson visited the Redskins over the weekend. Johnson played in 15 games last season, making 19 tackles.
The Seahawks announced the following players as inactive for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Packers: quarterback B.J. Daniels, safety Jeron Johnson, cornerback Marcus Burley, tight end Keavon Milton, tackle Justin Britt, defensive lineman David King and tight end Cooper Helfet. Johnson was the only inactive player listed on Seattle's injury report heading into the game. Seattle is an 8-point favorite.
Seahawks starting right tackle Justin Britt (knee) and safety Jeron Johnson (elbow) are questionable for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Packers. Britt missed practice on Wednesday and practiced in full Thursday before participating in a limited fashion Friday. He'll be a gametime decision, and Alvin Bailey will be plugged into the starting lineup if Britt can't go, Pro Football Talk reports. The team had four players listed as probable to face the Packers, including tight end Tony Moeaki (calf), center Max Unger (ankle), defensive tackle Tony McDaniel (shoulder) and cornerback Tharold Simon (illness).
The Seahawks did not report any players as out, limited or did not participate on Thursday's practice report. Seven players made the report, with all seven being listed as practicing in full. That group includes running back Marshawn Lynch (not injury related), tight end Tony Moeaki (calf), tackle Justin Britt (knee), center Max Unger (ankle), defensive end Michael Bennett (not injury related), defensive tackle Tony McDaniel (shoulder) and safety Jeron Johnson (elbow). Seattle is a 7 1/2-point favorite at home against Green Bay in the NFC Championship Game Sunday.
