Tom Johnson was mostly known as the ‘guy behind Cam Jordan’ this season. Jordan finished with two sacks on the season, and since joining the Saints back in 2011, has seen his fair share of action. The only bad news? Johnson finished out with a -4.9 grade on 229 snaps this season via Pro Football Focus.

2014 Outlook: Johnson will turn 30 in August, and could be one of those guys that will be on the fence. What will ultimately dictate that is if the Saints would rather have Tyrunn Walker play behind Cam Jordan.
