As much as I would like to give Dean a boatload of credit for this, I would have to say the lion's share of the credit must go to Johnson. In the last negotiation he realized that he hadn't been "all that" just yet and took a two year deal to prove something.

He pretty much has proven that he can be a very solid top pairing guy that with experience and better reads should only get better. Now he commits for 7 years at what will likely be a discount in terms of cap hit by the time year 2 or 3 of the deal rolls around. Nice job Jack.
