Johnson inked a contract with the 49ers on Tuesday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
The 28-year-old was let go by the Chiefs on May 20, and found his way back to the team that drafted him in the fourth round in 2014. Johnson only played one game with the Bills last season, but made 158 tackles and two interceptions over 63 games with San Francisco in the four years prior.
Johnson was released by the Chiefs on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Johnson signed on with the Chiefs in February after bouncing between four organizations last season. The 27-year-old started all 16 games for the 49ers in 2017 but has since had trouble latching on with a new team.
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 signing with the team on Nov. 27 and now has 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.
The Cardinals signed Johnson on Tuesday, Kyle Odegard of the Cardinals' official site reports.
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 cut 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 2014 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 (hip) was released from injured reserve Thursday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Johnson was placed on injured reserve prior to Week 1, and he will now be eligible to try his luck in free agency. The 26-year-old cornerback could very well get a shot with another team, as he was slated to start for Seattle entering this season
The Seahawks placed Johnson (hip) on injured reserve Saturday, NFL.com reports.
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 (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
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.
Johnson (hip) was a non-participant in Thursday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Johnson, who was named the starting right cornerback earlier this week, appears to be nursing a hip injury of undisclosed severity. It seems likely that Seattle is simply approaching Johnson's injury with caution, considering the team's lack of reliable depth at the position with Byron Maxwell (hip) on injured reserve and rookie Tre Flowers still acclimating to the position. Johnson should be considered questionable for Sunday's season opener against the Broncos.
Johnson will be the starting right cornerback Sunday against the Broncos, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Johnson had so much competition at the start of camp that he was basically penciled as the No. 3 corner. Byron Maxwell (hip) was placed on injured reserve and rookie Tre Flowers hasn't fully acclimated since he shifted over from safety. Johnson should be ready for the job after he started 16 games for the 49ers last season, making 77 tackles, seven pass breakups and one pick-six.
Johnson (foot) made one solo tackle in Saturday's preseason game against the Chargers.
Johnson's the wildcard in the competition for the starting right cornerback position, battling against veteran Byron Maxwell and rookie Tre Flowers. It's Johnson's first year in Seattle after spending four with the 49ers, where he was a starter in 2017 and recorded 77 tackles, seven pass breakups and one pick-six.
Johnson (foot) passed his physical Saturday per the NFL Media transaction log.
Johnson was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list prior to training camp after breaking his foot during minicamp last month. The injury required surgery, but his successful physical indicates he could be in line to return to practice relatively soon. He figures to compete with Shaquill Griffin and Byron Maxwell for a role in the Seahawks' secondary.
Johnson (foot) was placed on the PUP list for the start of training camp, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic Seattle reports.
Johnson broke his foot during minicamp last month and underwent surgery to repair the injury. While he doesn't have a clear return timetable, it's possible he could participate at some point during camp and challenge Shaquill Griffin and Byron Maxwell for a primary role in the secondary.
Per head coach Pete Carroll, Johnson broke a bone in his foot and will undergo surgery, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Johnson is a new arrival in Seattle after spending four years with San Francisco, and he's looking to harvest on Richard Sherman's departure. The 26-year-old corner carried a heavy workload in 2017, playing 1,029 defensive snaps while recording 77 tackles, seven pass breakups and one pick-six. The timing isn't ideal as Johnson is battling against Shaquill Griffin and Byron Maxwell for a steady role. No timeline has been released for his recovery.
Johnson agreed Wednesday with the Seahawks on a contract, Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network reports.
Johnson started all 16 games for San Francisco in 2017, racking up 77 tackles, seven pass breakups and a pick-six. He'll likely compete for the spot in the starting lineup vacated by cornerback Richard Sherman, who signed with the 49ers last month.
Johnson finished the 2017 campaign with a career-high 77 tackles (69 solo) and an interception in 16 games as a starter.
Johnson's 77 tackles crushed his previous season high of 34, but his lone interception actually tied his previous best as well. While two career interceptions are nothing to write home about, it is interesting to note that both were taken to the house by the 26-year-old. The 6-foot-2 corner has always been a part of the 49ers defensive back rotation since he was drafted back in 2014, but he really took a hold of one of the starting corner spots following Rashard Robinson's trade mid-season. Johnson is scheduled to be a free agent this offseason, but it wouln't be surprising to see the 49ers pursue him aggressively after his career year and their general lack of talent at the corner position.
Johnson recorded six tackles (five solo) and returned an interception for a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.
Johnson's pick-six came earlier in the second quarter of Sunday's contest, giving the 49ers a commanding 16-0 lead. The fourth-year pro has seen an expanded role this season as a starting cornerback, notching statistical career highs across the board -- 72 tackles (64 solo), seven pass defensed and one interception in 15 games.
