“He gave me a couple of stories about (Mike) Bobo since they were teammates,” Murray said after Thursday’s practice. “If Bobo starts yelling at me, I’ve got some stuff to say back to him. It was good. He was a great guy.”

Murray said Johnson “is a huge, huge receiver. He’s a big kid. (Matt) Stafford’s doing well with him, that’s for sure.”
