IF SUSPENDED, EAGLE JOHNSON WOULD BE OUT GUARANTEED $20.6M!

By Mary Cunningham

If, as we reported an hour ago, Lane Johnson is facing a 10-game suspension for a second violation of the NFL’s PED rules, it will cost him dearly.

It should be noted that Johnson has forcefully denied the report.

That suspension would violate the guaranteed money — $20.6 million based on inclusion on the team’s roster in 2017 and 2018 — of Johnson’s 5-year extension signed this offseason.

That’s a hefty chunk of change, and enough to think Johnson’s appeal is going to be pretty significant. If faced with that significant of a penalty (as if the 10-game suspension wasn’t enough), it’s reasonable to assume he’d take any and all precautions to prevent another failed test.

For Johnson, it could end up being a mistake that costs him more than $22 million in guaranteed money over the next three years.
