Multiple sources are reporting that former LSU defensive tackle Anthony Johnson has signed with the New England Patriots. Per The Boston Herald:
quote:

Johnson will join his third team as he enters his third season in the league. The 22-year-old out of LSU was signed as a rookie free agent in 2014 by Miami, where he made the team's 53-man roster but played in just seven games. He was cut by the Dolphins at the end of training camp last summer before being signed to Washington's practice squad in November. He was released by the Redskins last Monday.
Johnson played at LSU from 2011-2013 and appeared in 40 games with 16 starts at defensive tackle. He finished his career at LSU with 77 tackles, 22 tackles for loss and 7 sacks.

I wonder how much better he would have been under O.

I thought he'd be better. He looked like a cant-miss early in college career, but I know it's still a big jump to the NFL. - Was he just an early bloomer with a limited ceiling? or does he not put in the work or something? What's happening with him?

He never looked like a can't miss guy in college. He had a ton of hype coming out of HS. He was a good player at LSU but never particularly dominant. Hope he does well in New England.
