90-in-90 Breaking Down the Miami Dolphins Roster: Anthony Johnson

New, comments

Breaking down the Miami Dolphins' 90-man roster over 90 days. Today, we look at defensive lineman Anthony Johnson.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

We bring back our annual look at the Miami Dolphins' roster heading into training camp, a series we call 90-in-90. Over the next 90 days (or a few more as roster changes happen), we will take a look at each individual player on the roster, review what they did in 2014 either in the NFL or in college, then take a look at how they might progress or regress this season, and the chances that player will make the roster.


2014 Review:

2014 was Johnson's first season with the Dolphins,

He appeared in seven games and recorded 2 tackles.

He was placed on injured reserve on December 13, with an ankle injury.

Why he might progress:

Made the team last season at the deepest position on the team. So the team obviously sees something in the former undrafted player.

Will get the chance this preseason to show his worth.

Why he might regress:

The selection of Jordan Phillips and the signing of C.J. Mosley doesn't help Johnson's cause.

If Johnson were to make the team, he'd be buried on the depth chart and likely wouldn't see much playing time.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

Johnson will be fighting all preseason for a roster spot. He will have to beat out A.J. Francis to secure his spot. The team normally has a handful of defensive linemen on the roster.

Right now, I'm leaning to Johnson not making the roster.

So how do you think Anthony Johnson will do this season? Does he make your roster? Feel free to discuss below.
