Remember how Dennis Johnson used to bounce off/through defenders like a bowling ball when he was a Razorback?

Here he is in practice for the Houston Texans, with new #1 draft pick and former SEC night terror Jadeveon Clowney lining up opposite his offense, and Clowney is, you know, freaky good.

He zipped past the offense and got to Johnson in an instant, and it could have gone like the famous Michigan hit, but he wasn't tackling to the ground in practice so JOHNSON BOUNCED OFF HIM AND LEFT HIM IN THE BACKFIELD WOO PIG.

Let's watch some old Dennis highlights:
