  • Josh Johnson: Released by Houston
    By RotoWire Staff

    Johnson was released by the Texans on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Johnson was signed by Houston two weeks ago to operate as a depth quarterback after Deshaun Watson (knee) was placed on injured reserve. He never saw any snaps in Houston with T.J. Yates operating as the top backup to new starter Tom Savage.

  • Texans' Josh Johnson: Reaches deal with Houston
    By RotoWire Staff

    Johnson agreed to terms Tuesday on a contract with the Texans, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Johnson will replace the recently signed Matt McGloin as the Texans' third quarterback, with the potential to eventually challenge the uninspiring duo of Tom Savage and T.J. Yates for the starting or top backup roles, respectively. Though the 31-year-old Johnson has just five NFL starts on his resume, he's enjoyed a long career as a backup in the league thanks in large part to his live arm and mobility. Johnson's last regular-season NFL snap came in 2013 as a member of the Bengals.

  • Josh Johnson: Released by Giants
    By RotoWire Staff

    Johnson was released by the Giants on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Johnson was entrenched in a battle with Geno Smith for the No. 2 job behind starter Eli Manning. Neither was particularly impressive in preseason action, but it seems the Giants are simply more comfortable with Smith. The team's No. 3 QB, 2017 third-rounder Davis Webb, was never in danger of losing his roster spot because of the draft capital the team invested in him.

  • Johnson completed 5-of-10 passes for 31 yards while adding eight yards on two rushes in Friday's preseason opener against the Steelers. Johnson got the start with veteran Eli Manning sitting for this tuneup, but struggled in his four drives of action. He took three costly sacks, including a six-yard loss from Pittsburgh's 3-yard line. Geno Smith didn't do much with his opportunity, either, also failing to produce a touchdown while adding one interception. Johnson entered with a slight edge over the former Jet in the competition for the backup job, and this game likely didn't change that status quo with both failing to impress.

  • Giants' Josh Johnson: Starting Friday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Johnson is starting Friday's preseason game versus the Steelers. With Eli Manning sidelined for the exhibition opener, Johnson has been handed the first chance to land the backup quarterback gig. Once Johnson takes a seat, Geno Smith will try has hand with the Giants offense, but rookie Davis Webb is expected to see some action as well. Nevertheless, whoever lands the No. 2 spot is unlikely to pick up more than garbage-time snaps due to Manning's consecutive-game streak of 199 games.
