Seahawks wisely restructure Jeron Johnson's contract


The Seahawks were able to restructure safety Jeron Johnson‘s contract on Thursday which will keep him on the roster for the 2014 season.

ESPN’s John Clayton had the news first.

Keeping Johnson is huge for the Seahawks secondary and will allow another hard-hitter to rotate into the Legion of Boom.

Clayton also reported that the restructured contract may be because Kam Chancellor is expected to get hip surgery sometime this offseason.

The move also saves the Seahawks about $830,000 in cap space and puts them right around $15.85 million under their adjusted cap number.

Entering his fourth year out of Boise St., Johnson has played in 31 career games, all with the Seahawks, and registered 24 tackles.
