Here’s what Jaylon Johnson said about running with the 2nd team at OTAs

Jaylon Johnson

Chicago Bears cornerback Jaylon Johnson was greeted with an unpleasant surprise during OTAs last month. The presumed CB1 in 2022 was relegated to the second team by coach Matt Eberflus, who later downplayed its significance. Still, it was a surprise for a player who’s regarded as one of the top young cornerbacks in the NFC.

Johnson chatted about it with Jim Rome on The Jim Rome Show Wednesday and admitted that he was a bit surprised by his time as a second-teamer.

“I don’t want to say it didn’t bother me,” Johnson said. “But at the end of the day it’s not anything I’m going to give too much energy to. I know what I can do. And if I’m not mistaken they know what I can do as well.”
