The New York Football Giants, once infamous for their corps of linebackers, still keep in touch with one that moved on to the AFC and won more Super Bowl rings once out of Big Blue — albeit as an assistant coach.

Linebacker Pepper Johnson will be in Woodbridge, New Jersey on July 11, 2013 to sign autographs and chat briefly with fans at Locker Room Sports.

Johnson (New York Giants ’86-’92) was a part of both Super Bowls XXI and XXV under Hall of Fame head coach Bill Parcells and then-defensive coordinator Bill Belichick. He then followed Belichick to Cleveland for a few years and Detroit Lions for one before last playing for the New York Jets for two more years. As a player, he amassed impressive stats of: over 1200 tackles, 25.5 sacks, 14 interceptions, 12 forced fumbles, and two defensive touchdowns. He re-joined Bill Belichick in 2000 with the New England Patriots, winning three more rings as an assistant, inside linebackers coach, defensive line coach, and then linebackers coach. He is still there currently.

Locker Room Sports in located on 76 Main Street in Woodbridge, NJ, 07095. Pepper Johnson will be there starting at 7:00PM EST until about 8:30PM, or until every fan has had their item/s signed. He will autograph any item brought in for just $25.

    Always liked Pepper, and he could play.

    I’ve been away, so speaking of the Patriots, have people caught on to the cynicism about “The Patriot Way” in regard to Gonzalez yet? They knew what kind of thug he was when they drafted him. They saw the talent and they reached for it. I don’t know the details of his recent contract but I’ll bet it was structured with some kind of behavior “out” or made it easy to stop paying him if they cut him because the guarantees were minimal. I’m very cynical about that supposedly “classy” organization and suspect Kraft is a shifty guy with a great PR machine behind him.
