George Johnson: Cut loose by Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions released Johnson on Wednesday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

Johnson signed with the Lions less than a day ago, but the team decided to let him go after being awarded ex-Broncos defensive end Kasim Edebali off waivers.

Lions' George Johnson: Returns to Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson re-signed with the Lions on Tuesday.

Johnson spent four games with the Lions earlier this season before being waived prior to the team's bye week. In order to make room for Johnson on the active roster, the team waived fellow defensive end Jacquies Smith. In his first four-game stint with Detroit, Johnson averaged just over 20 defensive snaps per contest, recording two tackles in the process.

George Johnson: Departs from Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was released by the Lions on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Johnson had played a fair amount on the Lions' defensive front, logging 81 snaps over four games. Still, the Lions opted to bring in veteran Jacquies Smith instead, leaving no room at the inn for Johnson.

Lions' George Johnson: Joins Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson signed a contract with the Lions on Wednesday.

Johnson spent the 2016 season on injured reserve with the Buccaneers and was released prior to Week 1 earlier this month. The 29-year-old will hope to replicate his 2014 season in Detroit when he had 29 tackles (23 solo) and six sacks, but he will more likely serve as a rotational piece on the defensive line.

George Johnson: Released by Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was released Friday by the Buccaneers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

It was George's second stint with the team, but after failing to record a single sack in each of his last two seasons, he was resorted to a depth option on the defensive line. He'll now likely start the regular season on the free agent market.
