Johnson completed 57.1 percent of his passes for 590 yards, three touchdowns and four interceptions through four games, while contributing another 120 yards and a touchdown on the ground. He was sacked nine times in that stretch, as the tattered remains of Washington's offensive line was pressed to its limits down the home stretch of the season.
Johnson finished the year with a 69.4 passer rating – not great, although far more competent than Sanchez and his 28.0 rating. More importantly, the offense could function with Johnson at the helm, and they even got a win behind him in Jacksonville.
All of that makes for the situation they're in now, heading into an offseason with very little money to spend at quarterback, but still in need of another quarterback.
Johnson may be just the guy.
