Bobby Lee Johnson (born December 14, 1961) is a former professional American football wide receiver in the National Football League for three seasons for the New York Giants. He played college football at the University of Kansas.
He is best known as the receiver who caught Phil Simms' 4th and 17 pass in Minnesota in week 12 of the 1986 season. It is the play that many football historians feel turned the tide of the Giants championship run. The play set up Raul Allegre's game winning 33-yard field goal. The Giants won the game 22 - 20.
