Chargers sign linebacker Jarret Johnson for four years | ProFootballTalk. There aren't a lot of free agent outside linebackers for the Green Bay Packers to consider that could provide them with an upgrade.
But one of them that I thought about was Ravens LB Jarret Johnson. He's a good veteran, but he's on the wrong side of 30 and he only has 20 sacks in his 9 year career. The Packers could use someone like him to help in the running game, but that wasn't their main defensive priority this offseason. They need someone who can rush the passer.
Jarret Johnson may be the best LB in football at setting the edge vs the run.Specialist, but a great one— ProFootballFocus.com (@ProFootbalFocus) March 14, 2012
