New Washington Football Team Kicker Brian Johnson is From Bethesda

The Washington Football Team is on to its fourth kicker of the season, after signing MoCo native Brian Johnson off of the Chicago Bears practice squad.

In an unlikely sequence of events in Washington’s Monday Night Football victory, the Football Team saw kicker Joey Slye get his extra point blocked then suffer a hamstring injury while attempting to chase down Rasheem Green, who ended up returning it all the way to give Seattle 2 points before the half.

The injury left Washington unable to kick field goals or extra points in the second half of the game, but they were still able to put the Seahawks away after successfully going for two after their touchdown, intercepting Seattle’s late-game two point conversion attempt, and recovering an onside kick.

Tuesday morning the team was left looking for its fourth kicker of the season. They reached out to former Virginia Tech Hokies kicker Brian Johnson, who has had two stints on the Chicago Bears practice squad this year.

Johnson, who also graduated from Gonzaga in DC, grew up in Bethesda. In an interview with JP Finlay, Johnson stated that he grew up a Ravens fan, but has family that supports the Washington Football Team. The clip can be seen below:
