Logs last catch of 2022
Johnson hauled in his only target for 21 yards during Sunday's 10-7 loss to Carolina.
Johnson logged less than two targets for just the second time in 16 games. The 6-foot-4 tight end saw a massive increase in usage during the 2022 campaign, allowing him to finish with his best season as a pro. The 26-year-old recorded 42 receptions on 65 targets for 508 yards and a team-high seven receiving touchdowns. Johnson first emerged as a big-bodied red-zone target in 2021, but he became one of the Saints' top receivers this year due to the team's rash of injuries at wideout. He accumulated the team's second-most targets and receiving yards behind rookie wide receiver Chris Olave, as well as the third-most receptions behind Olave and Alvin Kamara. Johnson will now enter the 2023 offseason as a restricted free agent, and he'll likely be back to head the depth chart next year.
