Derrick Johnson: Re-signs with Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Derrick Johnson inked a three-year, $21 million contract to remain with the Chiefs on Wednesday, ESPN's Ed Werder reports.

Re-signing Johnson was likely one of the Chiefs' top priorities heading into free agency, as Kansas City lacks depth at inside linebacker, and will benefit from the consistent production Johnson brings to the table. The former first-round pick finished the 2015 regular season with 116 tackles (95 solo), four sacks, two interceptions and two forced fumbles, making him a valuable commodity in IDP leagues.

Chiefs' Derrick Johnson: Posts another strong campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Derrick Johnson finished the 2015 regular season with 116 tackles (95 solo), adding four sacks, two interceptions and two forced fumbles.

Johnson cleared the team's next closest (Ron Parker) in tackles by 38 tackles, finishing 16th in the league in that category. The veteran certainly put himself in contention for comeback player of the year, but will enter free agency in the offseason if the Kansas City Chiefs don't re-sign him before then. While the team has excess bodies on the outside now that Dee Ford has emerged, there's still little depth in the middle. The Chiefs will have an estimated $32.8 million in cap space this offseason, but some big decisions to make with guys like Eric Berry and Sean Smith set to hit free agency in addition to Johnson.

Chiefs' Derrick Johnson: Tops 100 tackles on the season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Derrick Johnson finished Sunday's game against the Ravens with 12 tackles (seven solo) and forced a fumble that was returned for a touchdown.

Johnson had another monster defensive output for IDP owners, and the 33-year-old should be among those considered for the Comeback Player of the Year award after suffering a season-ending injury in Week 1 of the 2014 campaign. Johnson now has 100 tackles on the season, marking the fifth time he's done so in the past six seasons, and has added four sacks, two interceptions and two forced fumbles. With the Browns and Raiders on tap for the Kansas City Chiefs in the last two weeks, it wouldn't be surprising if he has a couple strong performances left to finish out the regular season.

Chiefs' Derrick Johnson: Posts huge week
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Johnson racked up 14 tackles (13 solo), including one sack and two tackles for loss, in Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Johnson had a relatively slow start to the season, but has really picked up the pace recently. Over the last five weeks, the 33-year-old linebacker has totaled 44 tackles (39 solo), three sacks and a forced fumble. With some struggling offenses on tap, Johnson and the Chiefs' defense may have their way over the next few weeks.

Chiefs' Derrick Johnson: Collects seven tackles, sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Derrick Johnson finished Sunday's game against the Broncos with seven tackles (six solo), one sack, and two tackles for loss.

Johnson hasn't racked up the tackle totals he did prior to last season, but he did put out one of his better efforts of the season Sunday. He'll look to continue that effort next week against the Chargers.
