    Eagles' Charles Johnson: Joins Eagles after AAF success

    Charles D. Johnson signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles on Tuesday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.Johnson was one of the top players in the Alliance of American Football, leading the now-defunct league in catches (45), targets (70) and receiving yards (687), while only Rashad Ross bested his five receiving touchdowns. The 30-year-old also has a noteworthy NFL track record, as he was selected by Green Bay in the seventh round of the 2013 draft and ended up playing 39 games for Minnesota from 2014 to 2016. Johnson even had a brief stretch of fantasy relevance late in the 2014 campaign with six straight games of at least 38 receiving yards. He could push for the No. 4 wide receiver job in Philadelphia, competing with the likes of Mack Hollins (groin), Shelton Gibson, Braxton Miller, Johnny Holton and Greg Ward.

    Charles Johnson: Free to sign with NFL teams

    The AAF announced Thursday that all players, including Charles D. Johnson, are immediately authorized to sign with NFL teams.Johnson was arguably the most impressive receiver in the AAF this season not named Rashad Ross, and the 30-year-old ultimately finished the year with a league-leading 45 receptions and 687 receiving yards over eight games. He should be an option for any team in need of veteran depth at wide receiver, especially since Johnson has already shown potential in the NFL ranks thanks to his 2014 season with Minnesota when Johnson caught 31 passes for 475 yards and two scores.

    Charles Johnson: Leads AAF in receiving

    Charles D. Johnson leads the Alliance of American Football in receptions (11) and receiving yards (252) through two weeks.Johnson is one of the bigger names in the AAF -- a 2013 seventh-round pick of the Packers who posted a 31-475-2 receiving line for the Vikings in 2014. He bounced around the NFL after playing 39 games for Minnesota from 2014 to 2016, most recently getting cut by the Jets at the end of the 2018 preseason. Johnson will turn 30 at the end of February, but he apparently still has enough juice to get another look from the NFL, assuming he makes it through the AAF campaign without any major injuries.

    Jets' Charles Johnson: Catches Darnold's first pro touchdown

    Charles D. Johnson caught three of five targets for 45 yards and a touchdown during Friday's 17-0 win over Atlanta in the preseason opener.Johnson is right around the roster bubble in New York, but he certainly helped his case with this performance. Former Vikings teammate Teddy Bridgewater hooked up with Johnson for a 23-yard gain late in first quarter, and the receiver made an even bigger play late in the second quarter when he caught a 14-yard touchdown pass thrown by Sam Darnold. Johnson actually caught the ball in the end zone on the previous play as well, but that one was called back due to offensive pass interference.

Johnson (knee) signed with the Jets on Monday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.A 2013 seventh-round pick, Johnson made a bit of a splash while playing with Teddy Bridgewater for the 2014 Vikings, averaging 71 receiving yards over a five-week stretch late in the season. He's managed only 479 yards in his other 34 career games, most recently spending 2017 on injured reserve with the Panthers while recovering from a knee injury.
