In order to earn his first-career Pro Bowl invitation, Johnson would need to put together an even better 2011 season. Not an easy task considering his 2010 campaign was far and away his best in six years as a pro.
Of course, Johnson’s 2011 season ended up being a much better year than his already successful 2010 campaign. A career-year, no doubt.
“It’s a great way to be appreciated for what you did on the field during the year,” Johnson said of his 2012 Pro Bowl selection. “I know a lot of guys that should go don’t get to go, but when you get your first chance, like I have this year, it’s a blessing to go to Hawaii.”
