Ah, the band is back together.
Defensive end Michael Johnson, cornerback Brandon Ghee and defensive tackle Pat Sims have re-signed over the past two weeks, returning to the birthplace of their NFL careers. Johnson, drafted in the third round of the 2009 NFL draft, eventually replaced Antwan Odom while Brandon Ghee, drafted in the third round of the 2010 NFL draft, felt like a worthless pick... but not because it was his fault; recurring injuries have taken a Bono-sized dump on his NFL dream.
"When they signed Mike back, I looked at the situation like they're trying to put the whole team back together," Sims said on Friday. "I'm just glad to have a chance to play back with Mike and Geno and those guys again.
"I’m always going to go in there and do my job. I’m just a guy that goes in there and stops the run and anything else you ask me to do I’ll put my efforts in there, too," Sims said to some of the team's beat writers on Friday. "My main focus is stopping the run."
