The prospect of success with GWS Giants has convinced veteran forward Steve Johnson to saddle up for a 16th season and spurn opportunities to return to Victoria.Johnson initially signed for just one season after being released by Geelong last year.A triple premiership winner with Geelong, the 33-year-old Johnson kicked 43 goals for the Giants before missing the preliminary final through suspension.I think I can still go to the well once more and I want to stay involved here and hopefully bring home a flag next season., Johnson said at the Giants grand final lunch in Sydney on Wednesday.As much as it was a great season for the footy club, it was a missed opportunity, towards the end, so certainly I see the success building and to be given that opportunity to and the potential to do that next season is something Im excited about.The 275-game veteran confirmed he had other options, believed to be coaching offers back in Victoria.I wouldnt say it was (an) easy (decision). I took a lot of time to consider it, Johnson said.Youve got to pass it by your family. I guess you always want to play footy because thats what you love doing,.But I think everyone was aware there was some offers to move back to Melbourne.Giants coach Leon Cameron, who last weekend flagged the possibility of Johnson playing on for another season, was delighted by the veterans decision.I think hes got the appetite to play and clearly his legs are still going at the moment, Cameron saidHe contributes not just on the field, his ability to hit the scoreboard.He does contribute in making our forward line work, so were rapt to have him aboard.Johnson admitted it was tough to watch last Saturdays preliminary final loss, but said he didnt feel guilty at missing the game for a high bump on Sydneys Josh Kennedy in the qualifying final.I didnt feel guilty because I can honestly say that I didnt mean to do it. It wasnt intentional, Johnson said.He will undergo minor knee surgery next week, a procedure which has become a regular part of his career.I think this year is operation number 15, so its amazing Im probably still playing, Johnson said.Its a really minor thing that wont affect me too much, Ill be back day one of pre-season.Kids Helpline 1800 55 1800 (for young people aged 5 to 25).
