Ted Johnson: I Received Opposing Teams’ Audibles

Former Patriots linebacker Ted Johnson has added a new twist to the Spygate story. Johnson told USA Today in 2005 that from time to time he would receive the opposing offense’s audibles on a sheet of paper an hour before a game and didn’t know where they came from.

Johnson was just interviewed on Sportscenter and said he does not want to make it sound as though he thinks the Patriots spied to receive the audibles. He was asked if he ever saw any videotapes of opposing coaches and responded, “Absolutely not. Never.”

Johnson said he was just as surprised as anyone to hear the allegations of cheating. Also he said while he was a little suspicious on how the coaches received the audibles, there could be many explanations beyond illegally videotaping.

“Once the spit is flying out there on the field, I’m not thinking too much about audibles,” Johnson said.

My Take: When I first heard the story it certainly made me sit up in my chair. But after hearing Johnson’s explanation on Sportscenter, it doesn’t seem as though this could affect the investigation as a whole.
