    David Johnson - stay on topic, please

    Just wanted to start this thread to break away from the crapfest that the other became. So proud of DJ and the way his career as a pro football player has begun.

    Thoughts on DJ and the Cardinals in general so far?

    Additionally, WR Larry Fitzgerald sat out second half of yesterday's game with a hamstring injury.

    Their o-line is terrible but there is still plenty of talent on the Cardinals roster. Yet they have performed far worse than the Browns so far this season. Their new head coach better figure out how to put the pieces together quickly or he will not be a head coach much longer.

    Good thing he was able to get his new contract before the season. Hope he invests it wisely.
    Several factors for this team. First, a new coach. I loved Bruce Arians as their coach. Watched him as OC at Pittsburgh and his time at Indy before Arizona. He may come off as quirky but is definitely a player's coach. He is missed.

    Second, I believe they either lost their Center or several experienced o lineman before the season started. Quite honestly their o-line is not very good which doesn't help either the quarterback and especially the running back.

    I am hoping they get better and DJ can stay healthy and have production. Optimistically, it is early in the season so there is time for better play.

    tough to get yards when you're swarmed by defenders behind the line of scrimmage

    Not a great first game for Arizona today. The game is still in progress. However, David Johnson accounted for 30 of the 36 yards the Arizona offense had in the first half. I don't know about the second half stats but not a good showing by the Cardinals today.

    Congrats to DJ.

    $39 mil with $30 mil guaranteed.

    This contract helps him avoid the franchise tag in 2019 and 2020 which would have meant lower annual $ and less guaranteed $.

    He also will now have the chance to be a free agent after this contract when the new CBA and new TV contracts are in place which is to his advantage.

    Glad to see David Johnson got his extension. I see Fox is broadcasting tomorrow's Cardinals game. Unfortunately, in our market the Cowboys games is being shown not Arizona. Wish I could see DJ play more often.

    in any case, great news to see him get that settled before the season starts. (now if only the Arizona game was being shown here. Might have to head to BWW or something tomorrow afternoon)
    Through 2021 season.

    According to an article on the Cardinals' website, ESPN's Adam Schefter claims the total value can reach $45 million:

    The Arizona Cardinals have signed running back David Johnson to a three-year, $39 million extension, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    The deal is worth up to $45 million and includes $30 million guaranteed, the source said.

    Johnson, a fourth-year running back, skipped a June minicamp and two organized team activity practices as he sought a contract extension. Johnson was heading into the final year of his rookie contract and scheduled to make $1.905 million in 2018."
