  • Jets' Jermaine Johnson: Breaks out in second season

    Johnson had 7.5 sacks among his 55 tackles (36 solo) in 2023, while adding seven passes defensed, including an interception that he returned for a touchdown.

    Johnson's 37-yard pick six in Week 17 against the Browns was the cherry on top of a breakout sophomore season in which the 2022 first-round draft pick showed off his versatility with 7.5 sacks and seven passes defensed. Johnson's expected to maintain a starting role on the edge in 2024.

  • Jets' Jermaine Johnson: Returns interception for TD in loss

    Johnson had three solo tackles, a fumble recovery and an interception, which he returned 37 yards for a touchdown, in Thursday's 37-20 loss to the Browns.

    Johnson showed off his playmaking skills Thursday. He scored his first NFL touchdown on a pick-six of Joe Flacco in the second quarter and scooped up a Pierre Strong fumble in the fourth. The 2022 first-round draft pick has been overshadowed by some bigger names on New York's defense, but Johnson has turned into a quality starter in his second NFL season with 6.5 sacks among his 53 tackles (34 solo).

  • Jets' Jermaine Johnson: Has 4.5 sacks in last six games

    Johnson had four tackles (two solo), including 1.5 sacks, in Sunday's 13-8 loss to the Falcons.

    After mustering just 2.5 sacks in 14 appearances as a rookie, Johnson has 6.5 sacks through 12 games in his second NFL season, including 4.5 in his last six games. The Jets' third first-round selection in the 2022 NFL Draft (26th overall) hasn't garnered nearly as much fanfare as preceding picks Sauce Gardner and Garrett Wilson, or even early second-rounder Breece Hall, but Johnson's starting to establish himself as another franchise cornerstone from that promising draft class.

  • Jets' Jermaine Johnson: Doubles sack total in OT win

    Johnson had six tackles (three solo), including two sacks, in Sunday's 13-10 overtime win over the Giants.

    Johnson had two sacks entering Week 8 and was able to match that total thanks to two takedowns of Tommy DeVito in the last two minutes of the second quarter. Johnson leads the team with four sacks on the season and will look to add to that total in Week 9 against the Chargers on Monday night.

  • Jets' Jermaine Johnson: One sack in win

    Johnson registered five tackles (four solo) and a sack in Monday's 22-16 overtime win over the Bills.

    Johnson got the start at edge after the Jets opted to sit Carl Lawson -- who has been dealing with back issues -- for the season opener. Johnson was effective in his 48 defensive snaps and took down Josh Allen in the backfield for a two-yard sack in the fourth quarter. Expect Johnson to continue to get snaps on defense even if Lawson is able to return for the Jets' Week 2 matchup against the Cowboys.
