Jermaine Johnson II Excited To Learn From Haason Reddick

Jets DE Jermaine Johnson II was unsatisfied with his second season, which is surprising considering it blew his first away.

Jermaine Johnson II had zero starts from 14 games in his rookie campaign in 2022. Last season, he started every game on the way to making his first Pro Bowl.

On the season, Jermaine Johnson II recorded 7.5 sacks, 55 tackles, 16 QB hits, a forced fumble and an interception.

The Jets’ Super Bowl ambitions were wrecked from the start when Aaron Rodgers got hurt in Week 1.

However the defense was still good – good enough to rank third in the NFL for yards allowed. Johnson is particularly excited about the addition of former Eagles pass rusher Haason Reddick to the formidable unit.

“I mean, that’s the goal every single game, is to pitch a shutout, zero points on the board. So regardless of what the offense was going through, we know as a unit on defense that we had a standard we had to uphold that we set for ourselves, and that’s zero points on the board,” Johnson said. 

“So I mean, we didn’t get that done, and so until that’s done, every single game, zero points on the board, we’re not satisfied, and to be quite honest, we probably still won’t be.”

“When we’ve got a player, an electric and legendary, in my opinion, player like Haason, you can’t help but get better. I’m excited to get out there, work with him, learn from him, I know he’s got so many nuggets of information and knowledge he can share with me, and kind of just show me things that I don’t know,” Johnson said. 

“He’s so level and so humble. I’m just excited to have a guy like that on the other side from me.”
