  • Chargers' Austin Johnson: Joins Chargers

    Johnson is expected to sign with the Chargers on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Johnson spent the last two years with the Giants, and he earned a career-high 648 defensive snaps in 2021. As a result, he's been rewarded with a two-year deal worth up to $14 million, per Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com. Johnson should have a significant role at nose tackle with the Chargers, as he looks likely to replace Linval Joseph, who is an unrestricted free agent.

    Johnson was listed as questionable heading into the weekend after the foot injury kept him out of the Giants' first two practices of Week 15. He returned to the field Friday as a limited participant, demonstrating enough progress in his recovery from the injury for the Giants to feel comfortable with keeping him active. Johnson has been a force on the interior of the New York defensive line this season, tallying 59 tackles and 3.5 sacks.
