Lions GM Martin Mayhew said the team will tender RFA DE George Johnson.
After unsuccessful stints in Tampa Bay and Minnesota, Johnson blossomed with the Lions in 2014, recording six sacks and a career-best 29 tackles. Johnson's contract shouldn't affect Detroit's pursuit of top free agent Ndamukong Suh. Johnson is a candidate for a second-round tender. Feb 20 - 8:43 AM
