"When I first arrived in Cleveland, I was a wide-eyed, 21-year-old.  One of the first players I saw in the locker room when the veterans reported was Eddie Johnson.  He had the true body-structure of a linebacker.  No neck.  Muscular.  Not an ounce of fat.  A truly intimidating figure to someone like me coming out of little Elizabeth City State."

**********************************************************


"For the six years we were teammates, Eddie helped me grow as a person and a player.  He, along with Earnest Byner and a few others, were a tremendous influence to me both on and off the field." 

**********************************************************


"I was always impressed with the way people rallied around Eddie, who Bernie Kosar always called "Captain."  In the locker room, his voice meant something."

"I was very upset recently when I heard someone on a radio show questioning why we would have to help a former pro football player.  The host of the show made it sound like anyone who played in the NFL should be set for life financially."
