Josh Johnson is accustomed to moving around the NFL.

On Wednesday Washington Redskins Hats , he moved from one league to another.Johnson was the first player protected last week in a quarterbacks-only draft held by the Alliance of American Football, which will begin play the weekend after the Super Bowl in February. His rights in the eight-team spring league were owned by the San Diego Fleet.But when the Washington Redskins needed a backup for a third-stringer 鈥?with top quarterbacks Alex Smith and Colt McCoy out with broken legs, Mark Sanchez is now the starter 鈥?they turned to Johnson. The Alliance has an "NFL out" in its contract, league founder and Pro Football Hall of Famer Bill Polian explains. So Johnson was allowed to terminate his deal with the Fleet and head to D.C."He is a good player clearly, and he deserved to be taken where he was in our draft," Polian said Wednesday, "and we're glad he has an opportunity with the Redskins. If he is able to come back with us, that would be great. And if he stays with the Redskins, that is what we are here for."Johnson, 32, has been active for four NFL teams since being selected in the fifth round of the 2008 draft by Tampa Bay. He's also spent time in several other camps, but has not thrown a pass in an NFL game since 2011. He started five games for the Bucs and lost them all."I've been with Josh," Redskins coach Jay Gruden said. "He was with me at Cincinnati. He was with me at Tampa. And he knows the terminology. So when I say 'Dusty,' he knows exactly what it is. 'Quick seam Washington Redskins Hoodie ,' he knows what it is. So he can function that way, with the cadence, with the terminology."When you have three or four days to prepare for a team and get a quarterback ready, you got to have somebody with some familiarity. I felt most comfortable with Josh because he knows our protection calls. He remembers a lot of our terminology. He can move around a little bit. But mainly, for the sake of communication we had to have somebody that had a little bit of background in our system."Johnson was brought in by a few teams this year for workouts when they had quarterback injuries, but figured his next on-field performances would be in the Alliance. Given Washington's bad luck at the position this year, however, there's a chance he could be playing against the Giants on Sunday."I'm grateful to The Alliance for giving me the opportunity to continue my pro career," Johnson said. "I know I can play this game at a high level and having coach (Mike) Martz, who won a Super Bowl, select me to lead the San Diego Fleet was further validation for me. What I loved about The Alliance was their commitment to players. They made it clear from the jump if an opportunity presented itself to continue my dream of playing in the NFL, they would fully support me. That's what happened here with the Redskins, and I'm ready to go if and when my name is called."Fifteen players who had signed with the Alliance are currently under contract in the NFL. All would be welcomed back to the new league should they not stick in the NFL."If he wishes to play in the spring, we would certainly welcome him back with open arms Cheap Customized Washington Redskins Jerseys ," Polian said of Johnson, but he could be referring to any of those players. "I hope that is the case." Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse ó a survey of fans across the NFL, powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Redskins fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.With fans of all 32 teams voting, SB Nationís FanPulse has results for three key mid-season awards.MVPItís no shock that young Patrick Mahomes led the voting with 59%.The second-year player and first-year starter is setting passing records every time he steps on the field, and is currently on pace to throw more than 50 touchdowns this season.Heís young, personable, leads and exciting offense, and his team is winning.Photo by Adam Glanzman/Getty Imagesl wonder why he didnít start for the Chiefs last year?Todd Gurley showed strong for a running back, but if Mahomes stays healthy (remember what happened to Carson Wentz last year) and continues at his current pace, itís hard to imagine anyone beating him out for this award at the end of the season.Defensive Player of the YearFirst of all, let me say that any vote that doesnít list Daron Payne and Jonathan Allen on the ballot simply doesnít have any real credibility.Khalil Mack, the game wrecker (when he was healthy) simply dominated opposing offenses to start the season.He also managed to make Jon Gruden look pretty foolish along the way.Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty ImagesAaron Donald is right behind him in the voting Alex Smith Jersey Elite , but if Mack can finish the season the way he started, then he seems likely to still be running at the front of the pack when the real award is given out.At the moment, though, his injury status is affecting his availability and effectiveness.I read the Rams site, the Turf Show Times, today, and the fans there are indignant that Aaron Donald is not winning this vote. Watching Total Access tonight, I found out that Donald has 10 sacks this year from his interior DL position, so it seems like thereís good reason for Rams backers to complain.This could be one of the more interesting awards at the end of the season.All that said, Iím pretty damned thrilled with the play of Matt Ioannidis, Jon Allen, Daron Payne, Mason Foster, Zach Brown http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline … ith-jersey , Ryan Kerrigan, Preston Smith, Josh Norman, Quinton Dunbar, D.J. Swearinger, Montae Nicholson and Josh Harvey-Clemons.Iím ready to give them an award for Defensive Unit of the Year.Theyíre monsters that are making opposing offenses pay for every yard they gain.They are currently ranked 4th in the NFL and climbing.Coach of the YearMcVay probably had a more impressive year last season when he won this award, taking over a roster that had underperformed annually for years, and turning them into a playoff team immediately.Photo by Lisa Blumenfeld/Getty ImagesThis year he has a roster that is even stronger, and the Rams look like a juggernaut that is headed for the Super Bowl and a Lombardi Trophy.This former long-time Redskins coach is doing a magnificent job and deserves all the praise he is receiving.Of course, the Saints will be looking to derail the juggernaut tomorrow in one of the premier matchups of the week. www.nflshopoutlet.com/baltimore-ravens
