The Chiefs signed Johnson on Friday, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports.
Johnson had a whirlwind of a season. He began the 2018 campaign as a starter on the Seahawks, but he suffered a hip injury and was eventually released with an injury settlement. He then spent time with the Bills, Browns and Cardinals before being dropped after Week 15. The Chiefs secondary definitely could use some reinforcements, so Johnson stands a solid chance of making the roster if he can stay healthy.
Johnson was released by the Cardinals on Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Johnson did not play a single game with Arizona after having been signed on Nov. 27, and has now ultimately been released by the team. The fifth-year pro started 16 games with the 49ers in 2017, but has only appeared in one game with the Bills during the 2018 season. Johnson will look to earn a depth role elsewhere in the league if he goes unclaimed on waivers.
In search of reliable cornerbacks, the Cardinals added Johnson to their roster in hopes of solidifying the position. Johnson started 16 games for the 49ers in 2017 and finished with a team-high 76 tackles. He will likely back up David Amerson, though he could quickly see more playing time if Amerson struggles.
Johnson worked out for the Browns on Monday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.
Johnson appears to have quickly drawn interest from the Browns after being released by Buffalo in late October. With Denzel Ward (hip), Damarious Randall (groin) and E.J. Gaines (concussion) all nursing injuries, Johnson serve as an appealing depth option for Cleveland's secondary.
The Bills released Johnson on Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
To make room for newly signed Terrelle Pryor, the Bills waived Johnson, who appeared in just one game this season. The 26-year-old cornerback has 158 tackles and two interceptions in his five-year career and is now free to look for another opportunity.
