“Yeah, I’ve spoken to him and I’ve text messaged with him,” O’Brien said on Tuesday when asked about communication with the seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver.
On Tuesday, Johnson missed his first mandatory practice of the offseason after missing voluntary minicamp and OTAs.
“He has played a lot of football," O'Brien said. "He is a guy that has been in different systems, like I said a few weeks ago, I have a tremendous amount of respect for him and what he has done in this league. I believe that based on the different systems that he has been in that he would be able to pick up on our system. He’s a a very bright guy that has done a lot in this league. So, I think he’d be able to figure it out.”
