Jim Johnson dies at 68

After battling his reoccurence of melanoma for six months, Jim Johnson’s efforts finally fell short as he died yesterday at age 68.

Twenty-two years spent in the NFL, with more than a decade of Pro Bowl selections and defensive stands in Philadelphia, solidified Johnson’s reputation as a defensive guru.

Sadly, his final defensive stand was not strong enough. However, it is only one in a very long line of battles he has ever lost.
