Chiefs announce that Derrick Johnson will be allowed to test free agency in March

Per Terez Paylor





The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Tuesday that linebacker Derrick Johnson will become a free agent when his contract with the club expires at the start of the new league year on March 14. The announcement ends Johnson’s 13-year run with the Chiefs.

“Few players in recent history have meant more to the Chiefs franchise and the Kansas City community than Derrick Johnson,” Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said. “His tireless work ethic and passion for the game made him one of the most productive defensive players to ever wear a Chiefs uniform and one of the most respected players both in our locker room and around the league. Over the last 13 seasons, Derrick represented himself and the Chiefs organization with integrity and class, and he will always be a part of our Chiefs family.”

Johnson is the franchise’s all-time leading tackler, compiling 1,262 career stops (993 solo) in his 13 seasons with the Chiefs (2005-17). He earned four Pro Bowl berths in his time with the club.

“I’ve been blessed to be a part of the Kansas City Chiefs organization my entire career,” Johnson said. “I’d like to thank the Hunt family, my coaches, teammates and the staff for the tremendous amount of support I received over the years. I love Kansas City and this fan base, they’ve always had my back. I’m grateful I had the opportunity to spend 13 years in a place I love. I plan on playing for several more years because I love this game so much, but I look forward to retiring as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs when my career is over. I’ll miss my Chiefs teammates – we made a lot of big plays together over the years – and I wish them the best in bringing a championship home to the best and loudest fans in the NFL.”

General Manager Brett Veach and Head Coach Andy Reid weighed in on Johnson’s tenure in Kansas City.

“Letting go of a player like Derrick is particularly tough because of how much respect I have for him as a player and as a person,” Veach said. “He’s had a tremendous career here in Kansas City, and we wish him nothing but the best moving forward.”

“I’m grateful I had the opportunity to coach a player like Derrick,” Reid said. “He’s a passionate football player and a natural leader. I value the amount of quality work he put in every day for us, including teaching our younger players what it means to be a pro. I think he will make an incredible coach when he is done playing the game, if he chooses.”

Johnson played in 182 games (169 starts) with the club tallying 27.5 sacks, 40 quarterback pressures, 14 interceptions – returning four of those INTs for touchdowns – 23 forced fumbles and eight fumble recoveries. Johnson had a career-high 179 tackles in 2011 that led to his first of four Pro Bowl appearances. In addition to his four Pro Bowl berths, Johnson was named the club’s Mack Lee Hill Award winner following his rookie season, an award given to the team’s top rookie or first year player. Additionally, after his career year in 2011, Johnson was awarded with the Derrick Thomas Award, given to the team’s MVP. The former Texas Longhorn originally entered the NFL as the Chiefs first-round pick (15th overall) in 2005.

We ALL wish him luck in that endevor, but the sad truth is that most teams in need of his services are probably not among the contenders... but yeah, if he wants to keep playing for the love of the game go for it

KC will welcome him back with open arms when its all said and done... but you gotta admit that him retiring as a lifelong Chief has a special appeal to it, so few players can claim just one team these days

One of my KC prized autos was DJs rookie jersey that he autographed at camp for me in 05. My dad didn’t care about sports at all, but he knew how much they mean to me and bought me the jersey on NFL.com while I was vacationing there and shipped it to my house after talking to him about how excited I was that we drafted him.

DJ was an incredible player for us for so long and had so many dominant moments where he single handedly took over games. If he caught all the picks that hit his hands, he might have ended up the career record holder for interceptions by a linebacker.

It was the right time to move on for the Chiefs, but it’s still sad to see him go.

I hate he'll leave here but he's decided he's not done and it's a bid-ness...

I hate it. I know it's inevitable but...****.

This year we have to cut DJ and Hali.

I don't have to like it...

DJ was the ultimate Chief as a player and person, and he went through all the horrible years and still wanted to stick with this team. I think that's why it's tough.

Exactly.

Honestly, I don't think he wants to right now but eventually he'll be a great coach...

I usually wait till a guy retires before getting the jersey, but I'm in need of a new one...so it'll probably be DJ or Hali.
Thanks for the class and the memories DJ. I hope you just retire and be a coach. Good luck.

A genuinely supreme talent. Have never seen a backer that could do everything as well as he could. The way he knifed through blocks to dive and stop a rb -was pure art. A great player and an excellent person - not to mention incredibly loyal. I will miss watching him play. Sad that we couldn't get him a ring.
