Default AJ working hard on reducing the drops

Sportsline article had this about how AJ the others are working on their hands.

Quote:
Johnson worked tirelessly in the offseason to cut down on the drops. He would stand in front of a machine that fired passes harder and faster than Carr could -- which is saying something -- and catch 100 or so balls a day. One day last week following a practice, he was there again with Bradford and Gaffney doing a post-practice routine in front of the machine.

At one point, the receivers had the guy running the machine turn it up, making the ball come out as if it was shot from a cannon. Johnson didn't drop a pass.

"I'm more relaxed now," Johnson said. "Last year, I was a little tentative. Now I know what needs to be done, and I do it."

To help improve his speed, he dropped his weight from 230 to 215, and he looks quicker. At 6-foot-3, he's going to be one heck of a cover for the league's corners.
