August 13, 2006|By KATIE CARRERA

In 2005, Ravens defensive end Jarret Johnson played in all 16 regular-season games, starting 12, and recorded a career-high 61 tackles. The Homestead, Fla., native is entering his fourth NFL season since being drafted in the fourth round in 2003 from Alabama.

What's the strangest thing you've ever been asked to sign?

Probably body parts. Arms, foreheads, things like that.

What do you like to do when you're not on the football field?

I'm an outdoorsy guy. I have a chocolate lab and I like to play with him. He does retrieving, if you've ever seen retrieving contests on ESPN, my dog does that stuff. So that's probably my biggest hobby right now.

Did it take a long time to train him?

Yeah, I actually had to send him away. I have a trainer about five miles away from here and he was there for about nine months. It took him awhile to learn to do everything. I just like to play with him, you have to run them and train them. Dogs are creatures of habit so you're constantly training them.

What kind of car do you have and is there anything else you want?

I have a Ford F-150. Actually, I want an International Scout. That's the next vehicle I want.

What's your favorite TV show?

Probably Everybody Loves Raymond. I like that and Seinfeld.

Do you have a favorite Seinfeld character?

Kramer, everybody likes Kramer.
