Juwan Johnson Looks To Be Go-To Guy For Derek Carr

  • Headshot for Derek Carr

    New Orleans Saints tight end Juwan Johnson said he asked the Saints to put together film of Julian Edelman from his time in New England, signifying he could be used primarily as a slot receiver/tight end hybrid in 2023. "I know the type of role I'll be doing, and (Derek Carr) loves those routes," said Johnson. "(Edelman) is one of the best at those choice routes, short-game routes." This will be an interesting development to follow since Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Hunter Renfrow had a ton of success in a similar role in 2021. Johnson was a wide receiver in college and is on the light side for a tight end (230 lbs). In 2022, he posted the seventh-most slot snaps (185) among tight ends, so it's not a dramatic change. It appears he will be a move tight end while Foster Moreau serves as more of a traditional tight end.
