Former Boise State safety Jeron Johnson made one tackle on special teams for the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl on Sunday.
It was Johnson’s first Super Bowl appearance. He was on the Seahawks’ championship team last year but was injured and missed the Super Bowl.
New England beat Seattle 28-24 in this year’s game.
Johnson made his tackle in punt coverage. He also was flagged for running into the punter in the first quarter as he tried for a block. The penalty was declined. NBC analyst Cris Collinsworth argued on-air that Johnson should have been hit with a 15-yard, roughing-the-punter penalty.
