  • Saints' Juwan Johnson: Signs one-year deal

    Johnson, who had been an exclusive rights free agent, has signed a one-year deal with the Saints, Luke Johnson of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Johnson, who joined the Saints as a UDFA in 2020, switched from wideout to tight end last season and ended up logging 13 catches (on 22 targets) for 159 yards and four touchdowns in 14 games. Now that he's back in the fold, the 25-year-old will continue to work in a New Orleans TE corps that also includes Adam Trautman, Nick Vannett, Ethan Wolf and Dylan Soehner, with Garrett Griffin slated to become a restricted free agent. As long as Trautman remains healthy and available, however, Johnson is off the fantasy radar in most formats.

  • Saints' Juwan Johnson: Four touchdowns at tight end

    Johnson caught 13 of 21 targets for 159 yards and four touchdowns over 14 games in 2021.

    After converting from wide receiver during the offseason, Johnson was one of three New Orleans tight ends to have a sizable role in 2021. However, Johnson ran a route on over 52 percent of his offensive snaps while Adam Trautman (33.8) and Vannett (36.3) hovered around one third. Moreover, Johnson's four touchdowns were more than Trautman (two) and Vannett (one) combined. While his overall stat line still wasn't very useful for fantasy purposes, Johnson had impressive moments for an undrafted player who changed positions ahead of his second season in the pros. As an exclusive-rights free agent, Johnson should be back in New Orleans in 2022, when he'll again look to push Trautman and Vannett for receiving reps at tight end.

  • Saints' Juwan Johnson: Won't play Monday

    Johnson (illness) wasn't activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list prior to the Saints' deadline for Week 16 roster moves and won't be available for Monday's game against the Dolphins, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

    Johnson wasn't able to clear the NFL's COVID-19 return-to-play protocol after landing on the list Wednesday following a positive test of the virus. Adam Trautman is also on the list and Garrett Griffin (hamstring) was recently moved to injured reserve, leaving the Saints with Nick Vannett and practice-squad call-up Ethan Wolf as their only options at tight end Week 16.

  • Saints' Juwan Johnson: Shifts to COVID-19 list

    The Saints placed Johnson on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Kyle Mosley of reports.

    Johnson reportedly tested positive for the virus. Assuming he's vaccinated, Johnson will have a chance to gain clearance for Sunday's game against the Dolphins if he's asymptomatic. Adam Trautman and Nick Vannett would be the team's only healthy tight ends if Johnson is ultimately unable to play.
