Former Black Bear Derrick Johnson Re-Signs with New England

FOXBORO - When Derrick Johnson was cut by the Patriots back in June, he knew he would have a shot at rejoining the team. He also knew that it was not going to be easy.


The former University of Maine wide receiver went undrafted in 2014, but was picked up by New England on May 18th. He was injured during OTAs and then cut on June 9th. "I always knew that as long as I'm healthy and stuff, I'd get another shot," said Johnson on Friday. He returned home to New York to rehab his sprained left knee in order to earn his spot back on the team. "They actually sent me out to a place near where I live, for the professionals out in Garden City, New York," Johnson said. "[I] worked really hard, actually did two-a-days every day. As far as rehab and getting back to where I was before I got hurt, it was extremely important and it was a long process and I really gave it my all to get back. It paid off in the end."


The Patriots organization flew Johnson out to Foxborough this week for a workout. Johnson proved he was healthy, and on Friday inked a new contract. While the terms of the deal are not being released, Johnson will report back to training camp on Monday for another shot at making the final roster.


Last season at Maine, Johnson was tied for the team lead in receptions with 60 for 608 yards and two touchdowns in 13 games. Now he is catching passes from future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady, something he says he got used to rather quickly: "At first it was kind of a surreal feeling, but as practice went on and the days went on I got used to it. He's a real professional, comes to work every day looking to get better and he expects the same from the players," Johnson explained.


With his rehab behind him, Johnson says he's ready to "get right to work."
