Lions | Bryant Johnson catching everything in sight

Thu, 12 Aug 2010 21:17:05 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Bryant Johnson is playing at a different level in training camp this year and catching everything thrown his way, reports Tom Kowalski, of MLive.com. Offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said Johnson has strengths the team needs to lean on and now that Linehan knows how to use him better it is going to help the offense. Bryant is 100 percent healthy this year. While the team plans to use double tight end formations as their base offense this year, the emergence of Johnson could force them into more three receiver sets.
