A. J. Johnson aiming to improve coverage abilityJune 29, 2020 | 12:00 AM

Broncos LB A. J. Johnson will remain an "early-down mainstay" on defense with the goal of improving in coverage this season. Analysis: "Obviously, people talk about how me and Todd (Davis) can't cover; we're going to show them we can," Johnson said. The Broncos defense massively underperformed through the opening four games of the 2019 season. Vic Fangio then shifted, bringing Johnson and nose tackle Mike Purcell into the line-up. The positive results were obvious. Johnson then went on to play 91 percent of the team's defensive snaps for the rest of the season, ending in a breakout campaign in his age-28 season. Johnson has just one season left on his contract.
