    He wasn't the starting OT for 6 years. I believe only last season.

    We were both wrong. It was 4 out of his 5 seasons. http://www.nfl.com/player/charliejohnson/2506966/careerstats

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    He was the starting left tackle for the last two seasons. Prior to that he was starting Left Guard in 08 and started a handful of games at both RT and LT in 2007.

    Re: Vikings sign free agent OT Charlie Johnson

    Contract details finally released!

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/08/02/vikings-get-a-bargain-in-charlie-johnson/

    By cutting McKinnie, the Vikings avoided $5.65 million in salary and bonuses for 2011. And to snag Johnson from the Colts, the Vikings had to offer $10.5 million over three years.

    Per a source with knowledge of the deal, Johnson received a $3 million signing bonus, along with a base salary of $1 million in 2011. That translates to a cap number of only $2 million in 2011.

    The salary increases to $2.95 million in each of the next two seasons, with a $500,000 roster bonus due in 2013.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.
