Al Golden has said that backup offensive lineman Jermaine Johnson has left the team. Details not available yet, but we will update as they become available.

According to a few people on twitter, namely Jorge Milian, Golden informed the media today that Jermaine Johnson, a backup offensive lineman, has left the team.

No other details were available, but we will update you as they are released.

We previewed Jermaine in our Off Season Position Previews:

JERMAINE JOHNSON / Redshirt Junior / 6'6" 320 lbs / Fort Lauderdale, FL

2011 Stats: Played in 1 game

Johnson is a combo guy who can be play either right guard or right tackle, and has been putting pressure on both spots. He only saw action in one game last season, but has come into this off season as a completely different guy. Coaches have been raving about his work ethic, and the payoff has been a number 2 spot at right tackle (again, this shows you just how well Flowers is playing), and also a backup role at guard. Johnson will be key in providing depth for the line this year.

He had seen action in 4 of the 5 games, but had not made enough of an impact to become a house hold name.
