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.
Johnson was originally deemed questionable for Week 1, but it appears the injury is more serious than originally thought. He was projected to start at cornerback this season, so it is a big loss for the Seahawks out of the gate. Akeem King was subsequently promoted from the practice squad to help provide depth at the position. Neiko Thorpe, Justin Coleman, and Tre Flowers are all options to see increased roles as a result.
Johnson has yet to practice this week, but with the Seahawks lacking reliable options in their secondary, they will hope that the 26-year-old cornerback can still go Sunday. If Johnson is ultimately forced to sit out, Neiko Thorpe figures to see an expanded role on the back end of Seattle's defense.
