Jarret Johnson 'Would've Had To Throw Up' If He'd Had To Play For Steelers

Former Baltimore Ravens outside linebacker Jarret Johnson is now a San Diego Charger after signing a four-year deal, but he still doesn't have anything nice to say about the Pittsburgh Steelers.

"I told everybody if I went to Pittsburgh, I would've had to throw up on my jersey every time we played," Johnson told the radio station.

Pittsburgh loves you right back, Jarret.

You can check out the audio of the interview here. It sounds like Baltimore didn't particularly want him back, which, in a way, is sad for him -- it sounds like he's a Raven for life. The Steelers/Ravens rivalry is that good -- Johnson isn't even a Raven anymore, and he still can't stand the Steelers.

Jamison Hensley notes that the Chargers will play the Steelers in Pittsburgh this year. It'll be fun to see how Johnson is received.
