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.
Johnson (hip) inked a deal to join Buffalo's 53-man roster Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Johnson was recently released from injured reserve Thursday by Seattle and was free to sign with any team. The former fourth-round pick started all 16 games for San Francisco last season and was slated to start at cornerback for Seattle in 2018 before the hip injury hindered his season. It's unclear if the hip injury will allow him to play right away for Buffalo.
