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.

Josh Johnson: Released by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson was released by the Giants on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Johnson was entrenched in a battle with Geno Smith for the No. 2 job behind starter Eli Manning. Neither was particularly impressive in preseason action, but it seems the Giants are simply more comfortable with Smith. The team's No. 3 QB, 2017 third-rounder Davis Webb, was never in danger of losing his roster spot because of the draft capital the team invested in him.

Giants' Josh Johnson: Fails to deliver in preseason start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Johnson completed 5-of-10 passes for 31 yards in Friday's preseason opener against the Steelers.

Johnson got the start with veteran Eli Manning sitting for this tuneup, but struggled in his four drives of action. He took three costly sacks, including a six-yard loss from Pittsburgh's 3-yard line. Geno Smith didn't do much with his opportunity, either, also failing to produce a touchdown while adding one interception. Johnson entered with a slight edge over the former Jet in the competition for the backup job, and this game likely didn't change that status quo with both failing to impress.
