Pocatello, ID --- It was only two weeks ago that Eddie Johnson, former All-America punter for Idaho State, was serving drinks as a bartender and playing beach volleyball in Newport Beach, California, where Eddie lives when he is not in Pocatello. There are not a lot of beaches in Regina, Saskatchewan, but that's probably just fine and dandy for Eddie, as he is doing what he loves: playing football. The veteran of seven NFL teams, Eddie was signed on July 22 to be the punter and kickoff specialist for the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League, and if his first two games are any indication, his journeyman days might be a thing of the past.
