Today the National Football League lost a very good football player. Jarrett Johnson the former Baltimore Ravens linebacker and current San Diego Chargers linebacker announced his retirement.
Johnson was a highly respected veteran who spent the last three years with the Chargers after nine seasons with the Baltimore Ravens.
He brought stability and leadership to the defense. Johnson loved the Chargers locker room and will be missed badly.
Johnson made the announcement on his Facebook page saying, “I lived a dream which few can say but it’s time to move on. I want to thank the Chargers organization for giving me a home these past three years.”
