Packers Boosting Roster Chances: Anthony Johnson Jr.
While not without a few hiccups, Anthony Johnson Jr.’s performance wasn’t devoid of progress. In the midst of the action, he encountered a challenge when he was partially responsible for allowing a 42-yard slant that went for a touchdown. However, it’s notable that Johnson’s evolution on both the defensive and special teams fronts remains evident.
The Packers are currently grappling with an absence of a short-term and long-term plan for the safety position—opting instead for a mix of veteran players in an attempt to provide temporary stability. Amidst this uncertainty, Johnson’s potential holds intrigue. Although it’s yet to be determined whether he could serve as a long-term solution, his continuous growth and potential contribution to the team cannot be easily disregarded. This promising potential makes a strong case for Johnson to secure the sixth safety position for the upcoming season.
