After a 2013 season in which he finished with 109 catches for 1,409 yards, Johnson was selected to his seventh Pro Bowl. He didn’t play in the annual all-star contest, however because of a wrist injury. But Johnson said he’s “fine”, health-wise, and missed the Pro Bowl because he “didn’t want to go back out there and bang it anymore.”
The football conversation also meandered to the NFL Draft, and the All-Pro wideout was asked about his impressions of Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.
“I think he’s a great player,” Johnson said. “I’ve had a chance to meet him. He seems like a good kid.
