RTC: Johnson eyes special teams first

6/4/2014

Jacksonville Jaguars rookie running back Storm Johnson isn't worried about where he fits in the competition to get playing time behind starter Toby Gerhart.

He's concentrating on just making the 53-man roster and is focusing his energy on earning a spot on special teams first, writes Florida Times-Union columnist Gene Frenette.

"I’m happy to help my team any way I can -- kickoff return, punt coverage, punt return, whatever," said Johnson, who rushed for 1,139 yards and 14 touchdowns at Central Florida last season. "I'm just trying to get my foot in the door."

The Jaguars drafted Johnson in the seventh round and he is competing with Jordan Todman and Denard Robinson to be the No. 2 back behind starter Gerhart.
