Buccaneers Re-Sign Leonard Johnson

The Buccaneers will reportedly be keeping safety Major Wright, and it sounds like another member of the Tampa Bay secondary will be staying put. Scott Smith of Buccaneers.com reports (via Twitter) that the team will re-sign cornerback Leonard Johnson.

The former undrafted free agent out of Iowa State hasn’t missed a game since joining the Buccaneers in 2012. The 24-year-old started a career-low three games in 2014, but he still compiled 45 tackles, three passes defender and one interception. Pro Football Focus (subscription required) gave Johnson a negative rating for this performance this past season, but the cornerback still finished with a higher rating than some of his teammates, including¬†defensive backs Johnthan Banks and Dashon Goldson.
