Josh Johnson: Let go by Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was released by the Raiders on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Johnson was always viewed as a long shot to make the Raiders' final roster when he was signed back in March, as the team is fairly secure at the quarterback position with Derek Carr, EJ Manuel and Connor Cook all still on the roster. Johnson has floated around the league since being drafted back in 2008, and he could potentially still find a backup job at some point down the line if a team is in need of depth at the position.

Josh Johnson: Signing with Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson signed with the Raiders on Monday, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

A 2008 fifth-round pick, Johnson has bounced around the league as a third-string quarterback for most of his career, last attempting a pass in a regular-season game in 2011. He lost out to Geno Smith in a battle for the Giants' No. 2 job last preseason, and then caught on with the Texans for part of November and December. Johnson may get the chance to compete with 2016 fourth-round pick Connor Cook for the backjob in Oakland, though the team also figures to add another veteran and/or draft pick. Johnson is an Oakland native and a cousin of Marshawn Lynch.

Texans' Josh Johnson: Re-signs with Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans signed Johnson to a contract Wednesday.

The re-signing of Johnson, who previously served as a third-string quarterback for Houston for two weeks in November before being released, suggests the team isn't confident backup signal caller Taylor Heinicke (concussion) will be available for the regular-season finale in Indianapolis. If that's the case, Johnson would be active for the first time all season as the No. 2 quarterback behind starter T.J. Yates.

Josh Johnson: Released by Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.
