Brads not under-rated anymore....

The Buccaneers signed quarterback Brad Johnson to a contract extension Wednesday worth $25 million over the next four years. The deal includes a $6 million signing bonus and provides the team with more salary cap room. The extra room may allow the Buccaneers to retain defensive tackles Anthony McFarland and Warren Sapp, who are both heading into contract years. Talks broke down between the Bucs and Johnson when the two sides initially got together to discuss the contract extension three months ago, but all is forgiven now. “What happened, happened back then. As far as we're concerned that's ancient history,” Johnson's agent, Phil Williams, said Wednesday by telephone according to the Associated Press. “The Bucs called us in April wanting to do right by Brad and also create some (salary cap) space,” Williams added. “Brad was happy to do it. We probably could have done it in two days, but there was no rush.”

Johnson is coming off the best season of his career and now that he has the contract distraction behind him he can concentrate all his energy on football. At a minimum, Brad is going to be a very solid backup fantasy quarterback in 2003. Most fantasy players would like to see a better running game in Tampa and more consistency from the receivers before ranking Johnson among the top 10-12 fantasy quarterbacks.

I read this,I suppose it's good for the Bucs.I agree he needs better WR play & a ground game to be considered top15 fantasy wise.
