Apparently in January...

Saints sign former CFL DT Tom Johnson - NFL- NBC Sports

And he is showing on the roster...

New Orleans Saints: Tom Johnson

But don't know of his status or ability anymore than that... maybe somebody who's been at the camp could shed some light on his status.

Nothing like a guy who pays his dues to get to the show...

If he plays hard, laughs loud, and eats well - New Orleans and Saints fans will embrace 'em...

I cant even think about the depth chart without getting headaches. It will be interesting who makes the final roster.

I wonder if Tennant would be able to handle the starting Center role at this point. Something to definitely track in camp.

So I've tried to uncover some more information on DL Tom Johnson, but information has been scarce and somewhat uninformative. But alas I found some articles of mediocre interest...


The New Orleans Saints have signed former CFL DT Tom Johnson to a future contract, a source confirmed. Johnson, who signed his contract on Friday, worked out for the Saints on Jan. 13. Sportsnet.ca reported that Johnson signed a three-year deal. Johnson will go the reserve/future list until after the Super Bowl. Johnson, who played for the Calgary Stampeders the past two seasons, also worked out for the Green Bay Packers, Philadelphia Eagles, Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins.

Calgary Stampeders defensive tackle Tom Johnson finally got his chance at being a full-time starter this season but it could be a short tenure with the team.
Johnson is set to sign an NFL agreement in the coming days, Johnson’s agent has told Mark Stephen of QR77.
The hulking defensive lineman, who spent two years with the Indianapolis Colts prior to coming to Calgary, has narrowed it down to four teams. Those are the New Orleans Saints (close to Johnson’s hometown of Moss Point, Miss.), the Philadelphia Eagles, the Minnesota Vikings and the Seattle Seahawks.
There is thought to be a five-figure signing bonus involved.
Johnson was a West Division all-star this season after notching four sacks and recording 39 defensive tackles. The 26-year-old, 6-foot-3, 288-pounder was key to the Stamps’ second-rated rush defence.

The New Orleans Saints have agreed to terms with Calgary Stampeders defensive lineman Tom Johnson.

It is a three-year-deal with the CFL player that's potentially worth over $1.8 million.

The Southern Miss product previously signed with the Indianapolis Colts in 2006 after going undrafted in the 2005 NFL draft but was released at the end of training camp.

And the NOLA.com article about the signing...

The New Orleans Saints have agreed to sign Canadian Football League defensive tackle Tom Johnson to a futures contract, according to Calgary Stampeders director of player personnel John Murphy.

Johnson was originally signed by the Indianapolis Colts as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Miss in 2006 but didn't make the roster. He has since spent time in the Arena Football League and with the CFL's Stampeders.

Johnson (6-3, 288 pounds) bloomed in his second season with the Stampeders, recording four sacks and 39 tackles to earn West Division all-star honors.

So, not much info, but could be a potential "sleeper" as I referred to earlier? I have to admit that I had completely missed or just ignored this signing back in January, which of course can be explained by the fact that it was in January and with the future/reserve nature of the contract itself.

Plus, Safeties Amaya and Oliver will be in play.

Don't forget the LS Drescher.

Its a hornets nest right now. I would not be suprised to see somebody who was starting last year be a backup this year or even get cut.

There's definately some "healthy" competition across the board,especially on defensive side of the ball.I can't wait to see how it all pans out.You can hear the excitement in GW's voice when mentioning C.Jordan.That's making me comfortable in knowing we'll have a key contributor this year.
I've been listening to Bobby and his sidekicks speak on how M.Wilson's looking the part too!This season can't get rolling fast enough for me man
We're going to DESTROY most teams that fail to forfeit before the coin toss!!TWO-DAT
